3/4

1/8

  cup Grapeseed Oil

1

  tablespoon Apple Cider Vinegar

2

  teaspoons Baking Soda

1

  teaspoon Kosher Salt

2

  teaspoons Cinnamon

2

  tablespoons Maple Syrup or Apple Juice Concentrate

1/4

  cup Options: Dried Cranberries, Currents, Diced apple, Fresh berries

2

  teaspoons Chia Seeds and or Flax Meal

INSTRUCTIONS

1.

  (Preheat oven to 350) First, shred your carrot. I use my food processor because its easier, although it does make the carrot quite juicy so you   may have to squeeze out excess moisture, or grate with a hand grater. I never measure the carrots exactly, but it should be about 1 1-2 to 2 cups.

2.

  Next, smash your bananas with a fork in a medium bowl. Add oil, vinegar, cinnamon, and eggs. Mix with a hand mixer for a minute or so until you have a pretty smooth consistency(there will be some lumps from the banana).

3.

  Now add all of your optional ingredients. Here's where I add my apple juice concentrate, dried cranberries, chia seeds, flax meal, and nuts. Stir to combine.

4.

  Now mix your flour with the baking soda and add 1/2 the flour mixture at a time into your banana/egg mix. Gently stir to combine.

5.

  Last but not least add your carrot. It will take a bit of work to break it all up and make sure the batter is well mixed.

6.

  Add to nonstick muffin tins (use paper liners or a silicone tray). This should make 12 muffins. Bake for about 25-35 minutes. Times will vary as this tends to be a very moist muffin. So if you like them a bit drier just cook for a few more minutes. It also depends on the add ons you've put in and their moisture content.

7.

  These are impossible to mess up, and a really delicious and super nutritious. Some other variations include: substituting hazelnut meal for some of the almond meal, or adding a bit of steel cut oats if you feel the batter is too wet.
