Healthy Muffin Recipe – Apple Banana Carrot Muffins

This week I took part in a Muffin exchange with a group of moms from momstown Brampton. This baking exchange has a it of a twist we had to make a healthy muffin recipe – No white flour, no refined sugars, no butter or bad oils, no dairy, and if you are adding chocolate it had to be dark chocolate!  Phew a lot of guidelines to follow but I was up for the challenge of finding a healthy muffin recipe that was still delicious!  Here is the recipe that I made:

1/2 tsp Baking Soda

1/2 cup Apple Juice

1 cup Mashed Banana

3/4 cup Grated Carrots, I used my food processor

1/2 cup Raisins

Directions:

1 – Beat together the honey and coconut oil.  Add eggs one at a time.  If the eggs are too cold they will harden the coconut oil, so bring them to room temperature before starting.banana carrot muffins 1

3 – Spoon into greased muffin tins and bake at 350oF for 25 minutes or until golden brown

These muffins are moist and taste great.  They also freeze very well, so make a double batch so that you will have a healthy snack on hand!
