A little bit o’ everything muffin :) Carrots, Orange, Bananas and Walnuts!

So we had some browning bananas

and my mom wanted to throw them away. And I came to the rescue! I looked around in our kitchen to see what else I could throw in the yummy muffins I had in mind. I found: carrots and oranges.

Now, let’s preheat our ovens to 375 F. Then, oil and flour your muffin pans. Now, peel your bananas!

Mash!

[for some reason my mashed bananas photo won’t upload ūüė¶ ]

Now grab your carrots.

Peel!

Shred!

Now grab your orange and grate the skin off of it.

[Again…photo mishap…. :/]

So let’s mix carrots, eggs, orange peel, brown sugar and oil.

Sift the dry ingredients and slowly incorporate. Pour into muffin pan and place in oven. Bake for 35 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.

I must say, they were absolutely delectable and moist!

Yum!
