How to Make Carrot Cake Muffins from Scratch

These muffins are very easy to make. This recipe is a little different from other recipes because there is no pineapple in the batter. This recipe uses grated apples.

To make the muffins, whisk together eggs, sugar, oil, and vanilla in a bowl. Add flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt. Fold in some grated apples, grated carrots, shredded coconut, pecans, and raisins. Scoop the batter into muffin pans and bake.

This recipe makes about 18 regular sized muffins. You can also make the muffins in a mini muffin pan. Great for a party or crowd. You will just need to reduce the baking time if you are using a mini muffin pan.

These muffins freeze well. Wrap the muffins individually in plastic wrap and store them in a resealable freezer bag. When ready to eat the muffins, thaw and enjoy!
