29 Jun Carrot & Zucchini Muffins
I’ve been on the hunt to find recipes that are extremely healthy and so easy that toddlers can cook them. I won’t lie, my skills in the kitchen are pretty remedial but I try. Recently I started live broadcasting through an app called Periscope which is pretty entertaining. I decided to get Scout and her best friend, Chloe together for a little kitchen fun. Her mom found a pretty simple recipe for carrot and zucchini muffins that the girls cooked all by themselves. We streamed the whole ordeal live and it was definitely pretty entertaining to say the least. I believe you still have 24 hours to view yesterday’s kitchen fiasco so feel free to add us: Scout The City.
Let’s jump right into this yummy recipe so you can make these at home.
What you’ll need:
- Muffin pan
- Muffin liners
- Mixing bowls
- Measuring cups
