This month our challenge was “Orange You Glad It’s Fall”!! Yeah for orange autumn foods like carrots, sweet potatoes, squash, pumpkin and golden beets!! I love every single one of those and I know most of you do too! We have been thrown pumpkin, sweet potato and squash recipes left and right since the first week of September….it’s no wonder we all don’t turn orange!! haha And since we have all seen so many of those recipes, I decided to go with carrots because, well, I love them and I was really craving a muffin with raisins one afternoon! So this is what that craving turned into!!

Carrot Raisin Muffins – My 3rd Recipe Redux!

I made these delicious muffins and let them cool for about 30 minutes before I dove right in!! They were delicious!! They had a warm cinnamon flavor with a hint of ginger, plus the carrots and raisins added a nice sweetness that just made them sooo YUMMY!!! But not only was the flavor to die for, they were soft and moist just like a perfect muffin! And I may have spread a bit of cream cheese on one and coconut manna on another?! ?
