I got this recipe from Today's Parent Magazine. It is to attract toddlers but we liked it so much as a family that it is now in our cooking list every week, thanks to its low-fat, super moist, healthy ingredients. Hope you like it!

My toddler twins, who are very picky eaters, love these. I pureed the vegetables because I didn't want texture to be a reason for them to not try the muffins. I made mini-muffins so they were easy to pack and eat on the go. The recipe made 72 mini-muffins (1 Tbsp of batter) and baked for 8 minutes. I'll definitely make and freeze them again. I made these again but using 2 Tbsp of batter as my kids are bigger now. They baked @ 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes. Very moist muffins and still a big hit!

Delicious! I added raisins. Next time will spread cream cheese on them.

These are really great!! We add a little vanilla and some raisins. Like other reviewers, we often make them in mini-muffin tins. Thanks for a wonderful, healthy recipe!
