As soon as you set foot on markets and stores, you can tell that it’s apple season. Apples are queen in my pantry. My grandma provided me with enormous amounts of apples from their garden so I don’t have to worry that I will run out of apples for whole fall and winter. Like all fruits and vegetables from their garden, these apples are organic which is an extra bonus. 

So apples are the main fruit in our house for the last few weeks. We have raw apples as a snack, every few days I bake Apple Cinnamon Cookies and I just loveee having Apple Cinnamon Overnight Oats for breakfast. But my boys also crave sweet muffins on weekends so I make them these delicious Healthy Apple carrot Muffins. 

Healthy Apple Carrot Muffins

In this recipe, I used FRESH apples and carrots, whole grain flour and oh-so-flavorful HEALING spice – Ceylon cinnamon that gave muffins an overwhelming fragrance. Also, I used buttermilk which made my muffins extra soft.

Instead of using unhealthy fats – refined oils that are usually used to make muffins, I used healthier option – coconut oil. Furthermore, I added a bit of coconut sugar that gave these sweet Healthy Apple Carrot Muffins extra flavor but also a beautiful dark brown color.

These muffins are super soft and so sweet. + They are loaded with many NUTRIENTS. They are perfect breakfast, school snack or afternoon treat. It’s easy to make recipe that will quickly become your family favorite.

Enjoy!
