There is nothing better than a fresh muffin baked in your own oven. Having a muffin made from wholesome ingredients, including freshly shredded carrots is the ultimate in freshness. Carrots are so accessible and affordable, not to mention packed full of nutrients, you owe it to yourself to bake these beauties. Carrots are a particularly good source of beta carotene, fiber, vitamin K1, potassium, and antioxidants. They’re a weight-loss-friendly food and have been linked to lower cholesterol levels, improved eye health and reduced risks of cancer. The texture and taste of a carrot adds dimension to these muffins to make them not only nutritous but delicious. Enjoy!
