Start your weekend with this Apple Carrot Raisin Gluten-Free Muffin recipe. These gluten-free muffins are simply scrumptious and taste just like carrot cake. And the kids love it – without really knowing they’re getting a healthy serving of fruit and vegetables in just one muffin.
And the best part is that this recipe is made with real food ingredients and no refined sugar. You can make your own gluten-free flour recipe or you can buy online. I have a Thrive Market membership (if you don’t already have one – it’s awesome! It’s like Whole Foods meets Costco. Sign up for a Thrive Market membership and get 2 months free and 10% off your first order) and often buy gluten-free flour for way cheaper than health food stores.
I like to make a double batch on the weekend so we can enjoy them as an on-the-go breakfast during the week when we’re short on time for school. This Apple Carrot Raisin Gluten-Free Muffin recipe also freeze well to enjoy later.
So grab yourself a tall glass of raw milk or hot tea to enjoy with these gluten-free muffins.
Where to Get Kitchen Pantry Essentials
I get my other kitchen pantry supplies like sea salt, black pepper, spices, coconut oil, and other essentials either on Amazon or my local health food store usually. But then I got a Thrive membership. If you don’t already have one – it’s awesome! It’s like Whole Foods meets Costco. Bob’s Red Mill baking soda, for instance, is about $3 at my local health food store and $6 on Amazon. But it’s only $2.03 (YES!) on Thrive Market. Great deal right? And the raw honey?! Don’t even get me started how much that costs at the health food store. But on Thrive Market it’s just $5.45 for a 10.5 oz jar of raw honey.
