  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup nonfat or 1% milk
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 cups baking mix (biscuit or pancake mix)

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare baking pans. If making a loaf, lightly spray or oil and flour a 9×5 bread pan. If making muffins, lightly oil or spray a muffin tin.

2. Cook carrots until they are very soft, accordingly:

Fresh – Steam or boil.

Frozen – Follow package directions or microwave, steam or boil.

Canned – Rinse and drain.

3. Mash carrots well with a fork or potato masher, or use a blender or food processor to puree until smooth.

4. In large bowl, mix carrots with brown sugar, egg, and milk until well blended. Add remaining ingredients and mix well.

5. Pour batter into prepared bread pans or fill 12 muffin cups about 2/3 full.
