Spicy Pumpkin-Carrot Muffins

What do pumpkins and carrots have in common?  Well, they are both orange and they are both in this muffin recipe.  That means that eating one of these muffins counts for double vegetables.  I suppose we could add some actual oranges to the recipe to stick with the orange theme and get fruit in there, but I have to say that I don’t think oranges would add anything positive to this particular recipe.  We’ve also got cayenne pepper powder (also orange…ish) to add a little zing.

I hope you enjoy!

I should note that I added the glaze.  It is made of 1/4 cup of butter, 2 tbsp milk, and powdered sugar (added powdered sugar until you have a desired consistency).
