i was pretty skeptical when making these muffins because they called for ALOT Of carrots, were low in sugar and had alot of healthier type ingredients (spelt flour?!). They are probably one of THE BEST muffins i have ever made. I will be making these again and also try experimenting with adding some other things (maybe zuchinni in the summer?!).
8 oz. carrots (chopped and peeled)
1 egg replacer
1/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup applesauce
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup coconut oil
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup whole spelt flour (or oat or whole wheat flour)
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease a muffin tin.
Place carrots in food processor and pulse a few times until they are grated. Add in the egg replacer, sugar, applesauce, vanilla and coconut oil and blend until combined.
In a separate bowl, sift & mix together together all dry ingredients (flours, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt).
Pour wet ingredients into the dry and gently fold together. Don’t over mix.
Scoop batter into the greased muffin tin – approx 1/3 cup batter per muffin.
Bake for 15-18 minutes, use a toothpick to check for doneness. Don’t over bake.
