Carrot Apple Raisin Muffins - Gluten-free, dairy-free 2
Ingredients
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/3 cup very ripe banana, mashed
  • 1/4 cup honey or agave
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1.5 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup almond milk
  • 1 cup (packed) grated carrot
  • 2/3 cup rolled oats (I like Bob’s Red Mill gluten-free)
  • 1/2 cup almond meal (I like Bob’s Red Mill)
  • 1 cup + 2 tbsp gluten-free 1:1 baking flour (I like Bob’s Red Mill)
  • 1/4 cup raisins
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 C).
  2. Prepare muffin tin with liners, or lightly grease pan.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, add eggs, mashed banana, agave/honey, and olive oil. Whisk.
  4. Next, add applesauce, brown sugar, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon. Whisk.
  5. Add almond milk, grated carrot. Stir lightly.
  6. In a separate bowl, mix together the oats, almond meal, and gluten-free flour. Then add this mixture to your large mixing bowl with other ingredients.
  7. Fold in raisins, lightly.
  8. Divide evenly among 12 muffin tins, filling them all the way up to the top!
  9. Bake for 35 minutes, or until golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. When you press on the tops, it shouldn’t feel too spongey.
  10. Remove from oven and let the muffins cool in the pan for 15 minutes. Don’t try to unwrap them too quickly, or they will stick to the wrappers.
  11. If you haven’t devoured them all in one sitting, store in a sealed container at room temp 😉

  3. I try to make gluten free as often as I can. We use the same flours. I keep forgetting to add applesauce as a fat replacement.

    I’ve always liked muffins because they’re easy to make and filling! Perfect for busy mornings when you don’t have time for a full breakfast. This sounds like a lovely recipe! I love that it’s dairy free because I have 3 people who in the family who are lactose intolerant.

    I have never heard of flax eggs. What are they and where can I find them? This was very informative as I am looking for gluten free options.

      You can make them with flax meal and water!

      For each egg, combine:
      1 tbsp of ground flax seed + 3 tbsp of water
