I used my Carrot Cake, and turned it into muffins! Zoe asked for gluten free carrot muffins for her birthday sleepover with her best friend, since carrot cake is her best friend’s favorite cake She also asked for a vintage turquoise typewriter for her birthday. Her reaction was so great!
Gluten Free Carrot Muffins
Add to bowl:
5 room temperature eggs (cold eggs will harden the coconut oil)
3 cups shredded carrots (I do this in the food processor)
1/2 cup coconut milk
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce or honey (I like half of each)
1/4 cup coconut oil, liquified
1/2 tsp vanilla stevia
1/4 tsp sea salt
NOTE: If you omit the stevia, use 1/2 cup honey and no applesauce.
2/3 cup coconut flour, sifted
1/4 cup arrowroot
1 tsp baking soda
1 tbsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp allspice
Mix with electric mixer.
1 cup chopped walnuts
1 cup raisins
Fold in the walnuts and raisins.
For mini cupcakes fill cups all the way, and bake at 350 for about 30 minutes.
Makes about 50.
Frosted with my Coconut Buttercream Recipe.
