Zucchini, carrot, & raisin muffins

Jul 25, 2011 by

I’m still on my zucchini kick.  So I made these guys.  So freaking good!


I may have to make them again.  I sent most of them off with my wife for her work potluck, because I knew if I kept them at home I would eat them all.  I kept a few at home…and promptly ate them all.


My garden is finally starting to slow down on the zucchini kick, and I’ve been giving them away daily.


But I still have more than enough of these giant awesome zucchinis, so I made some killer muffins.  Here’s what you need.



1/2 cup sugar

2 tablespoons canola oil

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 eggs

1 cup grated zucchini

1 cup grated carrots

1/2 cup raisins

1 cup White Whole What Flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg

Preheat oven to 375 and get yourself a bowl and lets get making these.  Its super easy.


In a big bowl, add a half cup sugar.


add 2 tablespoons canola oil


add 1/2 teaspoon salt


Add the eggs and mix it up


Grate 1 cup of carrots


and throw it in the mix


grate 1 cup of zucchini


and add it in the mix


stir this up.


In a separate bowl we are going to add our other dry ingredients together.  Add 1 cup White Whole Wheat Flour


1 teaspoon baking powder


1 teaspoon ground cinnamon


1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg


mix it up


so it looks like this and then mix it into the other bowl


stir that up now to get this great gooey mixture


add in the 1/2 cup of raisins


and mix it up.


Throw these in your oven at 375 for 20 minutes.


They will come out looking and make your whole house smelling amazing.


Add some butter and eat it.  Then eat another.  Then another.  Then give the rest of them away before you eat them all.


I made a double batch of these and STILL had zucchini left over so I also fried up some leftover zucchini for dinner that night and it was awesome!!


This recipe was modified off of this awesome one.

    I cannot stop making/eating these!! Thank you! I have made the original recipe, with zucchini only, and tonight with zucchini and chocolate chips. We get so much zucchini from our CSA and this is the best possible way to eat them I’ve decided.

    I also notice that the list of ingredients says one large egg; however, the picture shows two?
