Cast your vote for Apple Carrot Muffins

The Apple

Apples are in the Rose family (Rosaceae) and is one of the most widely cultivated tree fruits that are used my humans. The apple tree originated in Western Asia and there are more than 7.500 known cultivars. At least 55 million tons of apples were grown worldwide in 2005 with a value of over $10 Billion Dollars. The United States is the second leading producer of apples with more than 7.5% of world production, whereas China produces 35%.

Research has suggested that apples may reduce the risk of many different kinds of cancers. They contain a small amount of Vitamin C but are rich in antioxidant compounds. Some studies have shown that apples may also help with heart disease. They do not have any cholesterol and they are bulky for their caloric content. Apple seeds are mildly poisonous, containing a small amount of amygdaline a cyancogenic glycoside. There is not enough to be dangerous to human's but can deter birds.

I have always associated apples with Autumn. It seems like the apples are a little sweeter, a little crisper and bigger in size. Just the right kind of apples that are fantastic to use for caramel apples for Halloween.

  1. I put my apples and carrots into a food processor and chop them fine. But you like chunks of fruit.. chop or shred the carrots and cut the apples into small cubes.
  2. Mix all the dry ingredient together. In a separate bowl mix all of your wet ingredients. Slowly add the dry ingredient to the wet in batches. Be careful not to over mix because it will make your cupcakes tough. Place paper cups into your muffin pan and I lightly spray the paper cups to make sure the cupcakes do not stick.
  3. Fill the cups 3/4 full, bake for 25-30 minutes at 350 degrees. After the cupcakes cool, you can lightly frosting them with a vanilla or cream cheese frosting.

Before I got my little furry child, I did a lot of research online about the best natural foods and snacks I could give to her... During my research, I found that an excellent treat for dogs is carrots and apples. So every day when I have my salad, Sweetie has her small amount of carrots and apples too.
