Vegan Carrot Muffins

These delicious muffins are easy to make and are so delicious!  They are perfect for spring brunch and they also happen to be gluten free and vegan!  If you would like to make a non gluten free version feel free to swap the gluten free flour for whole wheat pastry flour or all purpose flour.

  1. Preheat oven to 350F degrees, and line 10 muffin tins with liners.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and sea salt and spices and whisk to blend.
  3. Add the flax eggs, avocado oil, milk, and vanilla and beat with an electric mixer for about a minute (or 3 minutes if doing it by hand with a whisk).
  4. Pour the batter into the prepared tins, dividing evenly between them.
  5. Sprinkle with turbinado sugar.
  6. Place the muffins in the oven and bake for about 15-20 minutes until the muffins are done in the center (you are able to insert a toothpick into the center and it comes out almost clean with a few moist crumbs).
  7. Remove from the oven and let cool at least 15 minutes before enjoying.
