YUM…Carrot Raisin Muffins


Hope you are all having a stellar day! I looked at this picture and drooled all over my keyboard (it wasn’t pretty!) I love me some muffins, but since I’ve gone gluten and sugar-free, I haven’t had any. I realize though that not all my followers are gluten or sugar-free, so I wanted to share with you this really kick-ass recipe for carrot raisin muffins! Hey, I aim to please ALL the people! These muffins are awesome for breakfast or for a treat. You can make them ahead of time, freeze them, and nuke them in the microwave for 30 seconds when you need something quick; so good!


Take care of yourself, be nice to yourself, and be well, and until next time Veg in, Don’t Veg Out!

1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour

1/4 cup ground flaxseeds

1/3 cup pure maple syrup

2 TBSP oil

1/2 cup packed brown sugar

2 eggs, beaten

2 tsp vanilla extract

1/2 cup raisins

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Coat muffin cups with cooking spray (or use muffin cups) in a large bowl, sift together first seven ingredients (flour through salt). Set aside.

2. In a medium bowl, whisk milk, syrup, oil, brown sugar, eggs, and vanilla until sugar dissolves. Add dry ingredients and mix until just blended. Gently stir in carrots and raisins.
