I am always experimenting with low fat, low calorie snacks. Most of you know I am a vegetarian and I make my own veggie burgers. Anyway, for years I have not added oil or butter to my cakes and muffins. The way I do this is by taking the small about of white sugar and eggs and beating them with a mixer for at least 5 minutes. Doing this adds air to the mixture quadrupling the volume. I also use a cup of cooked veggie. I like sweet potato best but white potato, carrots and beats work just as well. OK on to the new recipe. The first thing I did was take 1/4 cup of good slow cooking oats.
(I am NOT a fan of quaker) and grind into a rough flour in food processor.
preheat oven to 350 degrees and prepare a muffin pan with paper cups.
You will need
3/4 cup white sugar
1 cup cooked and mashed sweet potato
1 grated medium carrot
1/2 cup finely ground almonds unsalted
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/4 cup ground oatmeal
1 t vanilla or almond extract
2 t baking powder
1/4 t salt
Beat eggs and sugar for 5 minutes. Add sweet potato, carrot and extract. Mix until combind.
Add dry ingredients. Once completely mixed spoon into cupcake pan. Bake for approximately 12 minutes. Insert a toothpick if it comes back clean they are done. Depending on your elevation you may have to bake a few minutes longer.
You can frost them if you like but they do not need it.
Or sprinkle powdered sugar on them. hhhmmmm good
Hope you try it.
Honor and integrity in art, in life.
