Carrot and Applesauce Muffins
I can’t believe it’s already the end of January! We have been so busy lately that I haven’t had a lot of time to cook and bake. However, it’s been a great month. We visited Evergreen and the Ice Castles in Dillon and I started working out again after 17 months! With all the activities though, I haven’t had the time to cook or bake.
But a couple days ago, the hubby was working from home and I had a little time to make Roark a baked good that he can eat as a snack during meals. He usually snacks on fruit or cereal, but I wanted to include oats and some veggies like carrots. Recently he has started to prefer sweeter things, so why not try a healthy muffin, right?
I got a recipe online for a Carrot and Applesauce Muffins and tweaked it quite a bit to make it dairy-free and healthier for a toddler. After a few tries, I came up with the winner.
He has loved every bite of it, stuffing it in his mouth like a cake smash session! I can’t even leave these Carrot and Applesauce Muffins where he can see it, because he wants to grab it and eat them. So warning, it’s highly addictive!
And it’s not just healthy for toddlers! As I mentioned on my last post, one of my 2018 resolutions is to get healthy and strong by eating clean and working out. These muffins are a great treat for those days that I just need something to curb my sweet cravings. Because it uses very little sweetener, egg whites and oat flour, these Carrot and Applesauce Muffins are not as caloric as other muffin recipes. Win! Win!
Oh and I can’t forget to mention that I made it using a blender. That’s right, easy clean up and super easy prep.
Go ahead, make these Carrot and Applesauce muffins! I bet your toddler will eat his/her carrots!
