Maple Carrot Applesauce Muffins
So moist and sweet from the applesauce and maple syrup. A great blend of spices that will make your house smell amazing!
Total Time: 10 minutes prep + 22 minutes bake
1 1/2 cup whole wheat flour (or sub other flour)
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ginger
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/2 cup coconut oil
1/2 cup maple syrup
1 flax egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 cup grated carrot
1) Preheat oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit and prep muffin pan with liners. I tried the parchment paper ones this time and they turned out alright, but as you can tell from the picture, did not stick to the muffin at all!
2) In a small bowl, mix together the dry ingredients.
3) In a larger bowl, mix with an electric mixer the coconut oil, maple syrup, flax egg, and vanilla. Then slowly add in the dry ingredient mixture until blended and sticky. Fold in applesauce and carrots until well combined.
4) Spoon into muffin pan and bake for 22-24 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean. Enjoy!! :)
