Muffin Recipe

We made muffins again, this time with carrots.  The children love to help measure and pour the ingredients, mix and eat!  One thing that is challenging at times is getting the paper off of the outside (and of course waiting for the muffins to finish baking)!  Thank you to all of the parents who have brought us baking ingredients!
1 c. whole wheat flour
1 c. white flour
3/4 c. brown sugar
2 t. baking powder
1 t. baking soda
1/2 t. salt
1 t. cinnamon
3 eggs
1/2 c. canola oil
1 t. vanilla
1 c. carrot puree or any other fruit or vegetable puree

Mix all ingredients until moistened.  Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes or until cooked through. 

Many children love to help in the kitchen, pull up a sturdy stool (away from the stove) and let them pour the ingredients, turn on the mixer and work your way up to measuring.  One very helpful tip is if they are stirring, I will tell my boys to keep the top of the spoon on the bottom of the bowl, this prevents various ingredients from popping out...  Enjoy!
