Grain-free Morning Glory Muffins

These are always a hit!

Grain-Free Morning Glory Muffins
  • 2 1/2 cups almond flour
    1 tablespoon cinnamon
    2 teaspoons baking soda
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    2 cups carrots, peeled and grated
    1 large apple, cored and grated
    1 cup shredded coconut
    1 cup raisins
    3 large eggs
    2 tablespoons honey (optional)
    1/2 cup coconut oil or butter
    1 teaspoon vanilla


1. Preheat oven to 350° F and grease a standard-sized muffin pan.
2. Combine almond flour, cinnamon, baking soda and salt in a large bowl.  Add carrot, apple, coconut and raisins and combine well.
3. In a separate bowl, whisk eggs, honey, oil or butter, and vanilla extract together.
4. Pour the wet mixture over the dry ingredients and mix very well. The batter will be very thick.
5. Spoon the batter out into muffin pan and place on middle rack of your oven for 40-50 minutes.
6. When a toothpick inserted into the top of a muffin comes out clean, the muffins are done.
7. Cool muffins in the pan for 8-10 minutes and then remove to a rack to finish cooling.

**If you are looking for variety, you can add a little orange zest to give them a bit more citrus flavor.
