I’ve shared a few carrot muffins with you already, carrot ginger muffins and carrot coconut muffins. This recipe is similar to those, but they’re all different in their own ways. I hope you try them all at some point, but today, it’s all about these quick and easy vegan carrot muffins.
Of all my carrot muffin recipes (carrots make good muffins!), this one reminds me most of one of my favourite cakes, carrot cake. Don’t you love carrot cake?
If the answer is yes, then this vegan carrot cake muffin recipe has your name written all over it!
The ingredients are simple but the part that makes them special, I think, are the spices. Cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger all team up to give them great flavour and then there are the add-ins: shredded carrots, raisins, and walnuts.
How big should the carrots be grated?
You want to finely grate the carrots, have a look at the carrots in the image above to get an idea. Use the smaller of the two shredder sides on your box grater.
Do I have to add raisins to these carrot muffins?
So…raisins. I’ve spoken about them before in other recipes, I love them but I know many don’t. You can leave them out, but I don’t recommend it. When testing the recipe, I made them once without raisins and they were good, but not as good as they could have been.
These muffins are not overly sweet, so the addition of raisins adds to the overall sweetness to make them just right in the sweetness department.
What is the texture like?
They’re moist, fluffy and have a very nice texture, not always something you would expect from a gluten free carrot muffin but have a look at the image below to see.
When you use gluten-free flour blends in baking, your finished treats sometimes tend to toughen up the day after, but a quick warm-up will get them back to where they were right after they came out of the oven.
If you follow the recipe as it is written and use the same gluten-free flour blend I did (details below), this is the deliciousness that awaits you:
I hope you enjoy these gluten free carrot muffins as much as I do. Be sure to pin them on Pinterest and if you make them, share a pic with me by tagging me on Instagram.
