Carrot Zucchini Muffins with Oats & Golden Raisins

Last week when my daughter and my granddaughter were visiting we decided to make muffins. (My granddaughter, Lyla is a big, big fan of blueberry muffins!)

We decided to try a slightly “healthier” muffin by adding carrots, zucchini, yogurt and oats. I must say these were a big hit with Lyla..and it was nice to have these around for us too!

In a large bowl mix the dry ingredients together. Next, in a medium bowl stir together all of the wet ingredients. Then gently mix the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients.

Grease a muffin tin with a little butter in each cup and full each one about 2/3 full. (I placed a nut atop each one, but realized later I should have done that halfway before removing as they got a little too brown).

Bake for about 10 to 12 minutes until golden and the center stays firm when pressed with your finger..(or a knife comes out clean)

These muffins were very flavorful, moist & quite tasty. My granddaughter devoured them! (Plus they were perfect for us with coffee in the morning or a cup of tea in the afternoon)

Enjoy!
