Apple Carrot Muffins

You won’t be disappointed with these, and neither will your kids! I’ve given these to a few of my clients, and so far they all like them!
Yay for healthy, nutritious snacks!


I changed up the recipe a tiny bit to make these muffins jam packed with nutrients.
Instead of the full cup of brown sugar, I did half brown sugar and half coconut sugar.
Instead of the full cup and half of whole wheat flour, I used a full cup of almond meal and just a half cup of the whole wheat flour (next time, I just wanna try all almond meal).
Instead of cow’s milk, I used a coconut/almond milk.
I also added a 1/4 c of chia seeds.

1/2 tsp sea salt
2 tsp cinnamon
1 1/2 c carrots – shredded
2 apples – peeled and shredded
1/2 c raisens

They didn’t rise as high as normal, but they were still sweet and tasted great.
