I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Loaded Carrot Sweet Potato Muffins

These dense and moist muffins are loaded with tons of good-for-you stuff! And you'll be surprised at what is used to spice them up!

3/4 cup baked and mashed sweet potato
2/3 cup applesauce
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 tsps vanilla
1 cup flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tbsp Chinese five spice powder (WHAT?!?)
1 1/2 cups shredded carrot
2 eggs
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup unpeeled, shredded apple
1 cup cream cheese flavoured chips or white chocolate chips

First, bake the sweet potato at 425°F for 45-60 minutes or until easily pierced with a fork. Cut in half and cool, then mash with a fork.
Combine sweet potato, applesauce, brown sugar, vanilla, eggs, shredded apple and vegetable oil. Mix the two flours, salt, baking powder, baking soda, five spice powder  and shredded carrots together. Now add the dry ingredients to the wet and mix just until combined. 
Fold in the chips.

Fill lined muffin tins using a scoop and bake at 375°F for 18-20 minutes or until a cake tester comes out clean.
Cool completely on a rack...
Then bite in! The five spice powder really works!

Makes 18 medium sized muffins
