Zucchini Carrot Cake Muffins

This nutrient dense muffin is the delicious meeting of carrot cake and zucchini bread and is a favorite after school treat for my kids.  The secret step to this kid friendly snack involves a food processor!  Enjoy for quick breakfasts, a bite on the go, or that last minute play date!  

My cooking philosophy is to keep it healthy and easy.  Recipes at Hammers N Hugs will include all-natural ingredients that can often be frozen and have been tested and approved by friends and family!

As I am typing this, 4 year old Caleb just said (with his mouth full of a zucchini carrot cake muffin) “Mmm, this is the yummiest muffin I ever tasted.”  Haha.  Perfect timing.  If you are new to the kitchen of Hammers N Hugs, then let me explain that I have a love for discovering and creating nutrient dense and delicious muffin recipes and have been making and freezing them for years.  They are perfect for a quick breakfast, a healthy snack, or a quick treat for a last minute play date.

One of the keys to adding veggies to any baked good is to stick them in a food processor and make sure there aren’t chunks such as the one above.  I have found, with my kids at least, that if they bite into a big chunk of something then the secret is out.  Ha. I personally recommend the Hamilton Beach Food Processor


This is what the carrots and zucchini should look like when you’re done!







I’m telling you, blend the veggies really well in a food processor, and these WILL be a hit.  Add the ground flax and the Greek yogurt, and you have a nutrient dense and delicious treat for now or for later!
