I tried finding a recipe to get my picky toddler to eat her vegetables. Since I couldn't find a healthy one, I came up with this. Using one cup of carrots and one cup of zucchini is a nice way to get both the yellow and green veggies into the diet! Any type of nuts, sultanas, etc. may be used in the recipe -- whatever is on hand and toddler approved.
Used different ingredients. used 3/4 cup oats in place of oat flour, used 70g ground almonds, omitted applesauce, and they turned out amazing. oh and used peanut oil in place of vegetable oil as i like the nutty flavour! - 10 May 2010
These muffins are fantastic. I didn't have any pecans (some omitted them) or oat flour (used a bit of oat bran and more wholemeal flower instead) but otherwise followed the recipe as is. They rose beautifully to a light and (very) moreish muffin. Thanks very much for sharing this. - 22 Jan 2013
Thank you for the kind reviews. As user Baked noted, this recipe does have too much sugar. It should be half the amount listed in the recipe - 1/2 cup. Not sure how that happened as I didn't submit it that way. It seems the part about draining the zucchini was left out as well. The mix can be too wet if the zuchinni isn't drained. - 20 Feb 2006 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
