Carrot Cake Muffins (GF)

I’ve never understood why Santa Claus gets cookies and milk on Christmas Eve, but the Easter bunny gets diddly-squat. They both bring presents and candy, why is Santa the only one that gets reimbursed? Help close the sweet treat wage gap and make these Carrot Cake Muffins to leave out for the Easter Bunny.
More than just rabbits will love these sweet muffins though! Not to mention, they’re good for you! They’re packed with fiber from the coconut flour, carrots, and raisins and sweetened without refined sugar with bananas and honey.
These muffins are also a great meal prep option for the week. One or two of these make a convenient snack or breakfast on the go. They are also freezer friendly, so you can reheat them anytime of year, even if the Easter bunny is nowhere to be seen.
If you want to add a bit of indulgence to your muffins, I’d highly recommend drizzling over a coconut butter glaze. You can find instructions on how to make it in my carrot cake cookie recipe.
Give back to the chocolate-giving, monster-sized bunny most likely bred in a lab and bake him up a batch of these Carrot Cake Muffins!

Grate carrots as finely as possibly. Carrots release their sugars the more they are cut. The finer they are grated, the sweeter they will be.
I find that adding in the raisins in batches helps to keep them from sinking so they are evenly distributed throughout the muffins.
