So the boys had a nap today!  And what did I do? I’d love to say I cleaned all the things that need cleaning or maybe acknowledged the massive pile of laundry that is permanently installed in my hallway, but no.  Instead I binged watched Netflix, had a cup of tea and ate two of these delicious muffins. Sorry, not sorry.

dsc_0009-2As a stay-at-home-mom I make a lot of muffins.  They are easy to make and travel well and something kids (and who are we kidding – everyone) always wants to eat.  Learning to bake with almond and coconut flour has been a bit of a learning curve (ongoing!) but I absolutely love the taste and texture these ingredients give to the finished product.  I have also chosen to make these dairy free and refined sugar free, so you can feel good about binging on them too 🙂


This recipe produces a moist and fluffy – almost cake like – muffin.  I love the flavour of orange and carrot together.  Its a classic combination and the added cinnamon really brings out the flavour of the orange.  You can add nuts and/or raisins to this as well for a more traditional carrot cake feel.  If you’re looking for a grain free cupcake recipe, these are a great option as well – just add your favourite frosting.
