Yummy Carrot Muffins!

Home / Recipes / Sweets / Yummy Carrot Muffins!

These carrot muffins are a delicious treat around our house, they are packed with all kinds of healthy goodness and easy for the kids to help make.  The recipe is one from epicurious that I have tweaked over the years.  Muffin batter is great to play around with because it is so forgiving, you can switch around the ingredients to suit your taste and not really mess anything up.

My little guy and I were enjoying a special morning together, when he got the flour and sugar out saying, “make muffins, Mommy!”  He is starting preschool next week with his sister, so I was savoring our last morning before things start changing.

My carrot muffins are not only full of freshly grated carrots, but also apples, raisons, coconut, and walnuts… we enjoy them for breakfast and snacks all day until they’re gone!
