Recipe'o the month ~ Carrot Cake muffins

So I found a different way to use sweet potato! and how sweet it is :P

2cups whole wheat flour
2tsp Baking powder
1/2tsp baking soda
2tsp cinnamon
1 1/2cups grated carrots
1cup milk
1cup applesauce OR grated apples (I used apples)
1cup Maple syrup
1tsp vanilla OR 1/4tsp almond extract

Preheat oven to 350

Mix the dry stuff together in a bowl
Mix the wet stuff together in another bowl
Mix them together in one bowl

Bake 15-18min (I did 15min)

Ok so where is the sweet potato you ask?!....in the icing! :O

*Maple cream cheese Frosting
3/4cup mashed sweet potato
1/3cup cream cheese, softened
2tbsp Maple syrup

Whip/whisk together......put on muffins once they are cool.
I made the icing while the muffins where baking then put it in the fridge to get a little hard which made it easier to spread.

*side note**** You may want to use a electric mixer. I hand whisked it...and while hubby was eating it he asked, "Why is the icing lumpy?" LOL!!!!...poor guy is always eating all these 'different' foods I make, he's a good sport.

'Live in YOUR Awesome!'
