Equipment

  • 1 12 cup muffin pan
  • 12 parchment paper muffin liners
  • 1 Measuring Cup
  • 1 set of measuring spoons
  • 1 Box grater

Ingredients
  

  • cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 medium bananas about ¾ cup mashed
  • 2 medium carrots about ¾ cup grated
  • 1 large apple (cored, skin on) about ¾ grated
  • 2 eggs preferably room temperature
  • ¾ cup agave nectar or coconut sugar
  • ¾ cup olive oil
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 Tablespoons quick oats for toppings, optional

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 400°F. Prepare the muffin pan by lining each muffin cup with paper liners.
  • In a medium bowl add flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon. Use a fork to mix.
  • Using a grater box, grate carrots (smaller side) and apple (large side). Mash bananas with the fork. Add fruits and vegetables to the second large mixing bowl.
  • Add eggs, agave, olive oil and vanilla to the shredded fruits and veggies. Stir everything well with the fork until combined.
  • Pour dry ingredients into wet, and gently stir just until evenly combined.
  • Spoon the batter in each muffin cup. Sprinkle with some quick oats on top. Bake for 18-20 minutes or until the cake tester comes out clear and the tops are golden. Let the muffins cool down for 5 minutes before transferring them to the cooling rack. Enjoy!

Notes

  • use parchment paper liners to prevent from sticking
  • do not over-mix the batter
  • top with coconut sugar instead of oats
  • use food processor instead of grater box to grate the vegetables and fruits
