These are my family's favorite muffins--they are always gone within the first day or two of making them. They smell so good coming out of the oven, the texture is great, and they are pretty healthy too! My kids have no idea they're filled with veggies. I always double this recipe. If I wasn't on a diet, I'd whip up a batch of cream cheese icing to go on top. Mmm, that would be good! NOTE: I've tried these with grated veggies and shredded, and both turn out excellent.
