Another Muffin

By popular demand. Well, a neighbor asked. I promise the next post will have something to do with literature and writing and all that. In the meantime:

Cocoa Cornucopia Muffins (makes dozen)

Combine dry ingredients in one bowl:
1.5 cups whole wheat flour
.5 cup Grape Nuts (or generic equivalent)
.5 cup rolled oats
1 T. baking powder
1 t. baking soda
1 t. cinnamon
.25 t. nutmeg
5 T. cocoa

Wet ingredients in another bowl:
2 egg replacers (2T. flax seed meal + 6 T. water; mix first, allow to turn gloppy)
.75 cup orange juice
.25 cup maple syrup
.5 cup soy milk
.5 cup raisins
1 cup shredded carrot
1 cup shredded zucchini
zest from an orange
1 t. vanilla

Add dry ingredients to wet and fold together. It should be thicker than cake batter, but wetter than cookie dough. Fill nonstick muffin pan. Bake 30-40 min. at 375 degrees. To test doneness, first listen. If you can still hear them noisily cooking, give them more time. Test with toothpick. Tops of muffins should be firm. Allow to cool in the pan for 10 or 15 minutes before removing.

If you have only zucchini or carrot or a lopsided ratio, the recipe will still work but allow for the fact that zucchini is slightly wetter than carrot. Honey or molasses can replace the maple syrup.
