I had an abundance of baby carrots in the fridge that needed to be used up so I grated some up and got to work baking muffins.

With my hand blender I mixed up the liquids.

Then I added in the carrots and chopped dates and mixed them in with the liquids.

In a separate bowl, I whisked together the dry ingredients.

Once the dry ingredients are blended, add them to the wet and mix until just combined.

Pop them into the oven and wait with anticipation for 25 loooooooong minutes until they are baked. While you are waiting feel free to stand next to the oven inhaling the mouth watering aroma escaping from inside.

I would love to bottle that enticing scent. So very, very yummy.

Once the toothpick test comes out clean, let these babies rest for about 20 minutes. You will be rewarded for your patience.

You would never know that these muffins are of the healthy variety.

Compared to their cake-y, white flour and butter laden counterpart, these spelt flour and coconut oil based muffins stand up incredibly well.

Satisfying with just the right amount of sweetness. Your family will never know the difference:)

  2. Having carrot muffin is indeed a good way to start the day because of its healthy aspect. What really got me was the ease in preparation. You don’t have to wait so long to make it. You can even do it alone.

  3. These sound delicious! I’ve been meaning to try using dates in muffins like this. They just sound so yummy!
