Wow! I feel so ashamed at how long I’ve been neglecting my still baby of a blog! Things have just been so crazy around here lately I just haven’t had a lot of time to myself to sit a write something. We finally got a referral to take Noah for his evaluation in Cincinnati, OH. We are hoping to get a diagnosis so when he starts preschool come fall he will have all the therapy and assistance he needs to be successful. So we will be doing a bit of travel to and from those appointments but nothing we can’t handle! I never stopped baking and testing new recipes, in fact I have several new ones to blog on my camera (which is inconveniently missing at the moment). Things should be calming down a bit over the summer (I hope!) so I my plan is to devote more time to getting on here and blogging about more recipes.
Even tho I don’t have the faintest idea where my camera is I do have one quick muffin recipe to share, just excuse my crappy phone picture!
Chocolate Chip Veggie Muffins (GFCF)
1 cup GF flour mix ( I used Bob’s Red Mill All-purpose GF mix)
1 tsp xanthan gum
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp ground cinnamon
2 tsp pure vanilla extract
1/2 canola oil
1 cup light brown sugar (packed)
1 cup grated carrot (loosely packed)
1/2 cup grated zucchini (loosely packed)
1/2 cup vegan or dairy free chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350F and line a muffin pan with paper liners. In a bowl whisk together the flour mix, xanthan gum, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt. In a different bowl , whisk together the eggs, oil, sugar, and vanilla until the mixture is smooth. Using a spatula or large spoon mix in the carrot, zucchini, and chocolate chips. Stir in the flour mixture to the wet mixture until just combined. Pour or spoon the batter into the muffin cups until they are about 2/3 full. Bake for about 25 minutes, rotating 180 degrees halfway through. The muffins should be springy to the touch and a tooth pick inserted in the center should come out clean.
Enjoy! The boys absolutely loved these, We only had 5 left by the end of the day when we made them.
