One of my favorite bloggers, Chocolate-Covered Katie, is hosting a Vita-Mix giveaway! To qualify for extra entries for the giveaway, you have to make a recipe from her archive - which isn't too difficult, since she has so many delicious ones!
I flipped through her recipes and found one that sounded especially delicious - 24-Carrot Cake Muffins. This one was especially good since I'm leaving for vacation in less than a week and I had half a bag of carrots left in the fridge. The recipe can be found on her blog - I only made a few substitutions, since as a non-vegan I don't have egg substitute or non-dairy milk. I would have liked to stay true to the vegan-ness of the recipe, but I just didn't have time to go pick up the ingredients.
The results - they were not only gorgeous, they were delicious! Sweet and very cake-like, and you could never tell that they're made with all whole-wheat flour, applesauce, and carrots. They're much more nutritious than they taste :)
I made a dozen of these and froze them, so I'm looking forward to having these around for quite a while!
