I continued my cooking and baking for the new family this morning and made Carrot Pineapple Sunshine Muffins from VCON. I was lucky enough to get a batch of Nantes carrots in my CSA shipment this week. They’re smaller and sweeter than your average bad boy carrot from the grocery store. They also contain more moisture so I thought they were a good choice for the muffins. These muffins don’t rise much which they tell you in the book, so they’ve got a flat top look instead of a puffy round top like many bakery muffins. Taste, though, a little less sweet than carrot cake but with the same cinnamony, gingery spiciness to them. I melted a blob of Artisana Coconut Butter on mine and boy was that a nice little breakfast surprise. New family got half a dozen and I kept the other half-dozen for N. and me. They make a nice afternoon snack with a cup of Coconut Chai tea, I should know since that’s what I had for mine.
Flattops or crew cut muffins, they look almost like cookies don’t they?
A big blob of Coconut Butter, it melted into a pool of loveliness on my warm muffin.
Bagged up, labeled and ready to deliver to those in muffin need
