Healthy Carrot Muffins

These Healthy Carrot Muffins are vegan AND delicious! The combination of warming spices, carrots, and raisins is amazing.

As my daughter will tell you, I love baking muffins. I try to incorporate vegetables and/or fruit in every muffin recipe and I always focus on minimal additional sugar from three sources only: honey, maple syrup, and/or maple sugar. These are natural sugar sources that offer additional vitamins and nutrients, such as iron, potassium, and magnesium. Plus they add their own flavor and texture to the muffins that is always a nice treat!
