crazy tasty agave carrot muffins

Posted on

These are CRAZY TASTY as my Aunt B says.  The agave carrot cranberry muffins are simple and fairly healthy! What more could you ask for?

To make these lil buggers you will need the following ingredients pictured above.  *Also throw in the mix vanilla extract and eggs. Woopsy Daisy, I forgot to photo those!*  I decided to use my  food processor for the carrots instead of grating them by hand. This girl loves a workout, but I used my muscles today at the gym and passed on using them again in the kitchen.

Here’s the recipe:

adapted from Country Living: http://www.countryliving.com/recipefinder/agave-sweetened-carrot-muffins

Ingredients – makes 16

 

  • 1 1/2 cup(s) all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup(s) whole wheat flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon(s) cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon(s) baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon(s) baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon(s) salt
  • 4 carrots
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/3 cup(s) dark brown sugar  *I used light brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon(s) vanilla
  • 1/2 cup(s) dark agave syrup
  • 1/3 cup(s) extra-light olive oil *replaced with “no sugar added” applesauce and a heaping T of coconut oil.
  • 1/2 cup of crasins *this really seemed to spice them up

Bake these puppies for 20 to 25 minutes at 375. Eat as soon as they cool off. Waste no time. At least I didn’t!

I am taking these muffins on our trip to Annapolis this weekend…that’s if they make it till then.
