Carrot Muffins

Adina Elena Vladulescu
These carrot muffins have all the flavors of carrot cake that you love, but in muffin size. They are ultra-moist, not too sweet, with a hint of ginger and a perfectly fluffy texture. They are great for breakfast or snack time!

Notes

If you have leftover muffins, store them, covered, at room temperature for two days, or in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. If they start to dry out, simply microwave them for about 15 seconds. You can also freeze leftover muffins for up to 3 months.
