In the fall I love ingredients like sweet potato, pumpkin and carrots even more! I think because the flavours of these foods go very well with spices that are commonly used in winter time/ with cold weather. Think about cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and chai spices. Not to forget my most favorite winter spices: speculaas spices!
One of my latest recipes “Sweet potato speculaas muffins” was very popular. I got many reactions from people who wanted to make or already made these muffins; they all love it! That made me enthusiastic to try another combination with speculaas spices and veggies. Today I chose to go with carrots. I added walnuts too, because they match great with carrots!
Also, I decided to go with apple sauce and maple syrup again, as additional sweeteners in these muffins. My flour base was whole wheat flour, but you can use most other flours as substitute, like oat flour or buckwheat flour (if you want to make muffins gluten-free).
These healthy carrot muffins came out slightly/ naturally sweet, little moist and well balanced spiced by the speculaas spices! I was very happy with the result, so that make me writing the recipe down right away to share it with you all. I hope you love these muffins as much as I do! They are great as snack in between your main mails, or have them for breakfast. They are sugar-free, dairy-free and rich in vitamins, fiber & good fats.
PS. your house will smell great when you bake these muffins! 😉
