Carrot Spice Muffins



I have been obsessed with muffins lately, and these ones were especially good. I got this recipe from "Baking: From My Home to Yours" by Dorie Greenspan. These are awesome breakfast muffins which include carrot (duh) dried cranberries, coconut and toasted pecans. The only things I would change are using fresh ginger and making them with half whole wheat flour to see how it works out.

 Can you say delicious! I wasn't sure about this combination when I read the recipe, but my worries were unwarranted.

 The combination of the ingredients was so pretty I had to take a picture.

All in all this was a success. The muffins were a good size (perfect for breakfast) and had a nice crunchy top. The book claims they are best consumed the day they are made, but both my husband and I found they were much tastier the next day. If you would like the recipe let me know in the comments.
