To me, there is nothing more comforting on a rainy day than these decadent carrot muffins with a cup of steaming hot coffee. The best part about baking muffins is not only do they taste amazing, but they will make your entire home smell delicious and cozy and warm! Of course, the main ingredient in these muffins are carrots. I try to always use organic since carrots are root vegetables. I just had to take a photo of the beautiful carrots I brought home specifically for these muffins.
Another key ingredient to these carrot muffins is Salba chia seeds. They add some crunch and offer many health benefits so why not!
Chia seeds are full of protein, fibre, antioxidants, and omega-3 fatty acids. They sound too good to be true, I know!
In my opinion, carrot muffins are simply not complete without cream cheese frosting! This recipe for cream cheese frosting is pretty simple and not too sweet. It only uses half a cup of icing sugar, so if you have more of sweet tooth you can add a bit more.
When I make these, they don’t even last a full 24 hours in our house, so I hope you love the recipe as much as my family does. If you do, please leave a comment below as I would love to hear from you!
