Recipe: Carrot Chocolate Chip Mini Muffins

 I wanted to make some muffins using some carrots, and the kids really like chocolate chip muffins when my mother-in-law buys them, so I thought I'd combine the two!

Carrot Chocolate Chip Mini Muffins

1 c all-purpose flour
1/2 c whole wheat flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp powdered ginger
1/4 cup sugar
1 cup milk (I used whey from draining my homemade yogurt)
1 egg
1/4 cup vegetable oil
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 cups grated carrot (I shredded mine in the food processor)
1 cup mini chocolate chips

Combine carrots, whey (or milk), oil, vanilla, and sugar.  Stir in the remaining ingredients, folding in chocolate chips last.  Scoop into lined mini muffin pans, and bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.

Pin It!
