Jonathan Giovannoni’s Carrot and Zucchini Muffins

20180721_140131_resizedI was so fortunate to enjoy this wonderful young man create his magic this weekend at Taste of Edmonton.  He started the day by making us some English Muffins stuffed with bacon, cheese and his green eggs (done by whipping kale and cream in the blender attachment).  During his next presentation he made these delicious muffins, enjoying a couple yet the next day they were still moist and delicious. If in the Edmonton area he is still demoing in the Taste for Kids booth though the remainder of the show.
