In separate bowl, combine flours, salt, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon and nutmeg.

Blend dry ingredients with lentil carrot mixture until fully incorporated.

Pour mix into prepared muffin pan and bake at 350ºF(180ºC) for about 20-25 minutes. Check to see if they are done with a toothpick inserted in centre, if removed clean, they are done.

Remove from oven and let cool in tray for a few minutes, remove and let cool on cooling rack.

*Lentil Puree: Rinse and drain a 19-ounce can of lentils. Place in food processor, add ¼ cup hot water, and puree until the mixture is very smooth, adding more water in small amounts to reach desired consistency, similar to baby food, about 5 minutes. Scrape down sides of the bowl as needed. Refrigerate or freeze unused lentil puree for your next batch!
