Run Fast, Eat Slow Post #2: Superhero Muffins

Hello and happy Friday all!

That week sure seemed to zip by with the whole Monday holiday thing. No complaints over here! My training has been starting to ramp up lately – 2 workouts a week, longer long runs, and speedy intervals! Woof. But somehow, I have been finding the time to continue to cook my way through Run Fast, Eat Slow (and my mom has too!).

So for today’s recipe, I want to tell you about the Superhero Muffins (pg. 42)!

They’re deliciously dense, moist, and packed with VEGETABLES. Grated carrots and zucchini to be exact. Honestly, the thing about this recipe that takes the longest is grating down all the carrots and zucchini to get the quantities needed.

It all gets mixed together-

I happened to have all 3 on hand so they all went in! Ordinarily, I think I would skip the chocolate chips though since the dates do a great job adding a little sweetness.

I only had 1 muffin tin on hand, so the extra batter I lumped into cookie-like blobs. Not as pretty, but just as delicious!

What have you been cooking up lately?
