Carrot & Pecan Nut Muffins

 

Hi there! I’ve been making these muffins forever for my family and for friends, but I finally put the official recipe up on my website today, titled “Carrots & pecan nut muffins.” If like me, you’re after a wholesome baked treat that will satisfy a craving for comfort foods, these totally fit the bill-they’re tender and moist with a distinct nutty undertone from the pecan nuts, and OBVIOUSLY GLUTEN-FREE. The best thing is that I can eat them for brekkie and feel nourished. Anybody else have this sweet anything cravings when a cold snap hits? How do you cope with them? I would love to hear your tips and as always, I would love to have your feedback.

  1. Hi this looks delicious. Is there anything I can substitute for the almond flour? I’m finding that low carb/ keto recipes requiring a substantial amount of almond flour is making a dent in my budget.
    Thank you

    1. Hi Fehmida, thank you for the lovely feedback <3 yes you can substitute with brown rice flour, cassava flour even buckwheat flour if you like the taste 🙂
