Recipe Notes

Reduce prep time by shredding carrots and chopping the apple in a food processor. Make it even healthier by substituting 1 cup all-purpose flour with whole wheat flour. You can also substitute ¾ crushed pineapple (with juice) for the applesauce. Swap out raisins for dried currants, dried blueberries or dried cranberries (or a combination of all three). These muffins freeze nicely as well.
