Carrot Coconut Raisin Muffins

Spread the love

Is it too late to be posting Carrot baking recipes? I mean, Easter came and went a month ago…

Oh, who am I kidding? As if we only eat things based on the holiday or occasion. Especially when it comes to awesome snacks or desserts that contain veggies but still taste like desserts! I think you all know what I’m talking about (besides the fact that you already saw the title of this post). Carrot cupcakes! Well, okay… carrot muffins in this particular sense.

Carrot Coconut Muffins - healthy and delicious! #recipe by sensualappealblog.comThe truth is, these muffins are actually a cupcake base. I meant to make a different variation of my carrot cupcakes with lemon cream cheese frosting that I made for last year’s Easter. However, we didn’t have any cream cheese at the time. And when we actually bought the cream cheese a week later, I no longer felt like making cupcakes. Was I lazy? Was I just not feeling it? I don’t know, but either way – I felt like making these cupcakes… I mean muffins, plain, without any topping. And guess what? STILL amazing and delicious!

I adapted the recipe from my original carrot cupcakes but with some changes. I made these at my parents house a few weeks ago and my mom didn’t have any whole wheat flour. That’s the reason why my recipes lately were all using Ultragrain all purpose flour. No worries, though, I made sure we bought some whole wheat flour on our next grocery trip before I went back to my apartment.

Clearly, these include coconut while the originals didn’t. I think these muffins came out great, they were moist, the sweetness factor was just right and I liked the fun complexity that coconut added to these carrot muffins. Enjoy!
