Gluten Free Carrot Muffins
These lightly sweetened, gluten free carrot muffins are made with high fiber coconut flour. They make a great addition to any brunch menu, though especially one for a healthy Mother’s Day breakfast or brunch.
Don’t let all that healthy stuff scare you off though, they’re mighty tasty. And with yacon sweetening them, they’re not too sweet. If you want to replace the yacon with agave your muffin will be just a bit sweeter. I tried making them both ways and preferred the yacon version.
