Ingredients
  • 1 cup white whole wheat flour
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted and cooled
  • ½ cup pure maple syrup (or honey)
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup finely grated zucchini
  • ½ cup finely grated carrot
  • ½ cup raisins
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F and place rack in the center of the oven, and coat a mini muffin pan with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. Combine the flour, cinnamon, salt, and baking soda in a mixing bowl and whisk until thoroughly combined. Set aside.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, stir together the butter, maple syrup (or honey), egg, and vanilla extract.
  4. Add the flour mixture to the wet ingredients and stir together until just barely combined.
  5. Add the zucchini, carrot and raisins and stir gently until just distributed.

  7. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean.
