  • 1 carrot, shredded
  • 1/2 cup shredded kale
  • 1 zucchini, grated
  • 1 small apple, grated
  • 1/2 cup cake flour or all purpose
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  •  1 cup rolled oats
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 small banana, mashed
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 tbsp molasses
  • 1/2 cup walnuts, roughly chopped

Preheat oven to 375. Place the carrot, kale, zucchini, and apples into a colander and squeeze out excess liquid. 

In a large bowl, combine flours, oats, baking powder, baking soda, brown sugar, cinnamon and salt. Mix until combined. Add in the vegetable mixture into the dry ingredients and mix roughly.  Add in the remaining wet ingredients (banana, oil, almond milk and molasses) and mix until just combined.  Add in the walnuts and lightly mix.  Add about 2-3 tbsp of batter into a greased muffin tin. Bake for 35 minutes or until firm to the touch. Cool for 10 minutes in the pan before removing.
