Apple Spice and Carrot Muffins [Grain Free]

Carrot and Apple Muffins

I think muffins are really difficult to make. I’ve always really struggled to make them. I’m not really sure why but I have never been good at it. I am not really a baker at heart. I’m a very detailed person except when it comes to baking. That is why I love to cook. It is creating and playing around with different flavors. There is a level of precision that is needed but then a level of creativity and improvising to make something taste great. Baking on the other hand just takes a lot of measuring, weighing, precision and also creativity. Those traits have never been my strength so I usually just tolerate baking and stick to cookies and brownies. I also realize the irony that I am posting a muffin recipe and telling you my struggle with them BUT these turned out AMAZING!!! I was smiling for hours about it and my husband wouldn’t stop eating them. They are seriously awesome and have a really great ‘muffin’ texture. They are great addition to any brunch or if you just need a snack.

Enjoy!

  1. Great looking recipe Jessi! I love the clean and wholesome ingredients. I’m the opposite of you – I looooove to bake. It’s the perfect destresser and I love the way the kitchen smells afterwards. Hope you’re having a great long weekend!

    • Thanks Anna! I am definitely learning to be patient and enjoy baking more! Got to take a peak at your blog and really enjoyed it! Hope you are having a great weekend too! 🙂

  2. This sounds like a winner recipe. I will try them this week. I’m not sure if you know we have moved to the Jackson Hole area, is there any adjustments I need to make because of the altitude–6200 ft.? I have had a number of “flops” here, and not all baked goods! Sometimes meat cooks funny here too.
    Blessings!

    • Cecilia, I don’t have a ton of experience in altitude baking so I am not 100% sure. I would assume it won’t take as long to cook. I’ve read that putting an extra egg yolk can help in baking. I’m sure it can be quite tricky baking! I hope it works out for you!
