Sometimes life gives you too many carrots and a muffin craving.

Carrot Cake Muffin

Last week after going crazily down the Beetroot Muffin path, I have decided to stick with vegetables in muffins but go back to the mainstream. Carrot Cake Muffins.

For some reason I used this Low-fat Carrot Cake Muffin recipe, I wasn’t really looking for a low-fat recipe, but this one caught my eye.

As always I made a few changes to the recipe, I’m not sure why pineapple chunks are in carrot cake. Is that normal? Or is that a weird low-fat addition? Anyway I removed the pineapple chunks, I guess if I was making it again I would add a little more sugar to make up for the change. However the buttercream topping added enough sugar for me.

These muffins were quick to make and tasty, definitely worth making again!
