Savory Carrot Muffin

Savory Carrot Muffin. I want to add more vegetables to our diet by adding a vegetable to breakfast items. However, I added shredded carrots to the muffin. Not only that, the applesauce keeps the muffin moist while adding walnut gives the baked good a lovely crunch. Also, the ginger balances the muffin. The cinnamon gives the baked goods a wonderful aroma.

Tips for baking muffin

First and foremost, do make freshly shredded carrots rather than using frozen ones. Not only that, freshly shredded carrots are easier to use and taste better. To save on time whenever there is time, do shred carrots and ahead of time and store them in the fridge. Thus, the carrots, applesauce, and maple syrup keep the muffin extra moist. Moreover, add walnut and chopped almonds on top for more texture. Therefore, I love the crunchiness of the nuts on top and in the muffin. Hence, top the muffin with orange zest for a refreshing smell.
