I bought a massive bag of carrots and I really needed to use some of them before they went bad. I like to try and make some sort of energy bar, muffin, or snack food for the week that Mike can take to school with him so he isn't eating processed granola bars. I found these yummy looking Carrot Walnut Muffins over on Learnloveliveeat.com and decided to try them out. I made them vegan & gluten free and was missing a few ingredients so i substituted but they still turned out really good. She has gotten the spices just perfect!
