I love to get creative in the kitchen on weekends! These very simple carrot cake muffins are the result of last Sunday’s baking. You simply must give them a try this weekend. They’re gluten-free, sugar free, dairy free and packed with healthy ingredients – and your whole house will smell heavenly!


Serves: 10-12

For the dry ingredients:

  • 2 1/2 cups almond meal
  • 1/2 cup desiccated coconut
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tsp. cinnamon
  • pinch of himalayan salt
  • pinch of nutmeg if you wish

For the wet ingredients:

  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • 3 carrots, peeled
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted.
  • 3/4 cup walnuts/pecans, chopped
  • 1/2 cup sweeter of choice: raw honey, maple syrup or stevia granules



  1. Preheat oven on bake to 180 degrees C.
  2. In a large bowl, combine almond flour, coconut, baking soda, salt and cinnamon.
  3. In a food processor, combine the wet ingredients.
  4. Add mixture from food processor (the wet ingredients) to dry mixture in the large bowl and combine thoroughly.
