dailydelicious: Carrot & Pineapple Muffins

When talking about muffins you may think about something that is low in fat and quite dry, right?

This time our muffin is not dry, or you can say that it is very moist!

But the moisture in the muffin is not coming from the fat, it comes from the mashed carrot and pineapple, with a plus from the brown sugar that helps keep the moisture in the muffin stay longer too. 

With carrot, pineapple, and lovely cinnamon fragrance, this muffin gives me a homey taste (and a feeling of comfort), it’s so relaxing. Not only that this muffin gives you happiness from its taste but it’s packed with a load of fiber from carrot, pineapple, whole-wheat flour, and roasted sunflower seeds that add more texture to the muffin too. 

As this muffin doesn’t contain the dairy product, so anyone who’s allergic to it can enjoy it.

You can have this lovely muffin with a cup of hot drink as breakfast, afternoon treat, or I can say that you can enjoy it anytime!!
