I absolutely adore the Autumn season! The harvest, bright full moon, cool nights and the delicious warm smells of pumpkins, apples, cinnamon and steaming cups of hot apple cider. I may be slightly obsessed with this season but that's beside the point. You came by for a muffin recipe not to hear me go on and on about my favorite time of the year.
The beauty of this recipe is how EASY it is!!! It's designed to be mixed in a blender or food processor and naturally gluten free. For an easy dairy-free switch substitute the egg for a flax meal egg.
These muffins are light and tender, the cinnamon and nutmeg shine brightly and the finely shredded carrots add just the right amount of moistness The ground pumpkin seeds help to amp up the protein count while adding a nice earthy warmness to these delightful snacks.
Toss them in the freezer for an easy no-fuss snack or simple breakfast.
