If you have kids (or spouses) at home that resist eating vegetables, you are going to love this chocolate chip carrot muffin recipe. It tastes like a dessert, but packs in a full serving of vegetables along with whole grains. It doesn’t get much better than that, does it?
I used to be able to get my oldest to eat carrots all of the time. He was convinced eating carrots would give him superhero vision, and who was I to argue with that? But one day he just stopped eating them. When I asked him why, he told me he could see if the dark really well now, so there was no need to eat any more carrots. Ugh! I guess some things can only last so long LOL.
If you struggle to get your kiddos to try vegetables like carrots, my never-fail approach is to add them into a recipe they love. And for us, any muffin recipe that included chocolate chips is always a hit. So it made sense to merge the two together and create the easiest, most delicious Chocolate Chip Carrot Muffins you will ever eat. And since Easter is right around the corner, I figured it would be the perfect time to share these tasty treats with you!
Want to see how easy these can be to make? Check out my video recipe complete with bunny costumes (because of course you need to dress like a bunny when eating carrots right?!)
Just a little backstory about this video – we filmed this when my house was on the market. Right after I set up the whole kitchen with the camera, ingredients, kids in bunny pajamas, and carrots everywhere I get a call from my realtor someone was coming to see the house in 20 minutes. So yea, the video may seem slightly rushed and that person didn’t put in an offer (and probably still talks about the crazy lady with the bunny kids to his friends), but it makes for a fun story 😉
