Not from scratch but just as good. These muffins are a much healthier version as well. They include some fresh veggies and applesauce to replace some of the oil. They are a great way to get some veggies in your kids. Need a quick and easy recipe in a hurry? This is the one for you.

How to Make Quick & Easy Zucchini Carrot Muffins-Annette's

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. In a medium to large bowl, combine the cake mix, egg, applesauce and oil or melted butter. Mix well.
  2. Stir in the zucchini and raisins. If using pecans, stir them in as well.
  3. Fill greased or paper-lined muffin cups 3/4 of the way full with cake batter mixer.
  4. Bake for 25-30 or until cake test done when sticking a toothpick in the center and it comes out clean.
  5. You can leave these plain but they are DELICIOUS with cream cheese frosting. To stick with the theme of making it super easy, when cooled completely you can frost cupcakes with canned creme cheese frosting or you can make a homemade cream cheese frosting. Enjoy!
