Healthy Apple Walnut Carrot Muffins

Just in time for wintery mornings by the fire with strong hints of cinnamon and baked apples wafting from the oven, these hearty and healthy Apple Walnut Carrot Muffins hit the spot

Filled with warm apples and carrots, with hints of banana, and topped with caramelized brown sugar and crisp walnuts… simply delicious!

These muffins are gluten-free, dairy-free and hearty as hell… but in a good way, of course.

The other day, as with most days, I wanted to bake. Free my mind and (culinary) spirit by measuring, mixing and baking. Kitchen time is my time to unwind and to decompress from the day ahead and behind me.

Muffin search #1 yielded a huge variety of holiday muffins but after seeing the beautifully photography by trusted, Minimalist Baker, I knew her healthy carrot muffins had to be made.
