GF Carrot Spice Muffins for the road!

I am about to drive solo from Maryland to Colorado and, although “breakfast is included” in both of my hotels, I still pack something for myself. To make it easy and to try something new, I decided to interpret a Carrot Spice muffin recipe I found on Oh She Glows. Although the recipe is usually with gluten and is vegan, I decided to make it not vegan and instead, gluten free.

 

Here is the original recipe:

Vegan Carrot Spice Muffins

Adapted from FFVK.

Yield: 12 muffins

Dry:

  • 1 & 3/4 cup whole-grain Kamut flour (or white whole wheat flour)*see note
  • 1/4 cup natural sugar
  • 1 tbsp ground flax seed
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda *see note
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 3/4 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/8 tsp ground cloves
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt

Wet + Mix-ins:

  • 1/3 cup + 2 tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened applesauce (oil replacer)
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk (the cream on top from a full fat can) OR yogurt * see note below
  • 1/4 cup + 3 tbsp water
  • 1.5 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1.5 cups grated carrots (about 3 small-medium carrots)
  • 1/2 cup raisins, soaked in water and drained
  • 1/3 cup chopped & toasted walnuts

 

and HERE are my changes
