Zucchini, Apple and Carrot Muffins

zucchini, apple, carrot muffins

Looking for a delicious healthy muffin recipe?! I, as a lot of parents are always trying to come up with recipes that include healthy ingredients especially vegetables. Vegetables are the number one hated food item in our house. These muffins are very good and a great way to get those veggies eaten. Everyone, including your children will gobble these right up. Add a little butter for an extra good taste 🙂

TIP: I threw the veggies/fruit in the food processor to speed up the process. Shred a bunch of veggies and throw in freezer bags for another time or make a couple batches and freeze the muffins.
