Have you ever tried to grate up a million and three mini carrots to make muffins?
I have. And either I’m extra clumsy or just prone to bad luck, but it seems I grated my own fingers more than the dang carrots.
Scrapes aside, once the carrots were grated, these muffins were very simple to make. I didn’t even use any machinery. Just a whisk and a rubber spatula.
Mix, pour, bake. Simple, simple, simple.
I really should make muffins more often.
Don’t expect these to be like carrot cake (unless you slop a heaping of cream cheese frosting on top) the flavor profile is similar but not exact. But these are a tasty treat either way.
Thank you to the lovely Nancy for choosing these muffins. They made a bunch of hard workers have a bit of a better morning 🙂 Head on over to her blog for the recipe (or click here to be taken directly to it.)

These look so good! Love the muffin liners, too.
wonderful looking muffins!!! so vibrant and fresh.
Pretty muffins and such cute liners, too! 🙂
Love the stripped papers on these. Very dressy!! These muffins were good, weren’t they. I need to make more, but I know why I don’t. I don’t really need to buy more clothes!!!! LOL
I grate my fingers too when I don’t use the food processor. Your muffins look great. I liked these a lot, especially the spiciness.
Your muffin photos are making me hungry again. They look great.
Grating carrots is the worst part, but after that, it’s smooth sailing. You’re right that these aren’t carrot cake, but they make a pretty good stand-in at breakfast time. Your muffins are very pretty. Thanks for baking along with me this week.
