Ingredients

Instructions 

  • First, preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Heavily spray a muffin pan with nonstick spray.
  • Grate carrots. Once grated, place carrots between two towels or paper towels and squeeze out all excess water. Then measure out 1 cup. Set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, add mashed bananas, eggs, light olive oil, vanilla extract, maple syrup and molasses. Stir to combine.
  • Then, add in all remaining ingredients except grated carrots.
  • Fold in carrots.
  • Scoop muffin batter into sprayed pan. Fill each almost to the top (about ¾ of the way full).
  • Bake for 15 to 16 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
  • Finally, remove from oven. Allow muffins to cool for 10 minutes in pan then remove to a cooling rack.

Notes

  • Heavily spray muffin pan with nonstick spray to prevent sticking.
  • Use light olive oil, not extra virgin.  The oil should be mild tasting.
  • If you don't have molasses, replace the 2 tablespoons molasses with 2 more tablespoons of maple syrup.
  • After grating carrots, squeeze out all excess moisture.
  • Bake until toothpick inserted comes out clean.
  • Store covered at room temperature for up to 3 days.
