Moist Carrot Muffin Recipe

I got this scrumptious carrot muffin recipe from my Grandmother many years ago. This is one of her favourite muffin recipe as it is so tasty and moist. They make the most delicious healthy carrot muffins!

The carrots are a great vitamin punch with their Beta-Carotene which is a powerful antioxidant, vitamin C and the B-complex vitamins. Cinnamon is wonderful for stabilising blood sugar, the pecan nuts contain healthy polyunsaturated fats and the apple contains vitamins A, C and B vitamins.
