Ingredients

  • 2 cups 1:1 gluten free flour see notes for alternatives
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup ground flax optional
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar
  • 1/4 cup raw honey
  • 1/2 cup melted coconut oil
  • 1/3 cup almond milk
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2 cups shredded carrots about 4 large
  • 1 grated apple about 1 cup I used honeycrisp * you don’t need to squeeze juice out
  • 1/2 cup golden raisins

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 425°F and line a muffin tin with liners and spray with nonstick spray. Set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the gluten free flour, baking soda, ground cinnamon, salt and flax seed (optional). In a separate medium bowl whisk together the eggs, coconut sugar, honey, melted coconut oil, almond milk, vanilla, carrots and apple.
  • Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and fold together until just combined and all the pockets of flour are gone. Add the raisins and stir until just combined, being careful not to overmix.
  • Divide the batter evenly between the muffin cups all the way to the top. Bake the muffins in the preheated oven for 5 minutes then reduce the heat to 350°F and bake for another 17-19 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool in the muffin tins for 5-10 minutes then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

Notes

If you don't have gluten free flour: use the same amount of white all purpose flour (not gluten free) or you can use a combination of 1 3/4 cups almond flour and 1/2 cup tapioca flour
