Recipe: Paleo Applesauce + Carrot Muffins

Thursday, February 9, 2012

There are things that I never knew I loved until I went Paleo. Like muffins. I mean, I've always liked muffins, but I've never been someone who sees a muffin and thinks, I need to eat that thing. More often than not, when I used to see a muffin, I wouldn't really even look at it twice. But now that I can't actually have a muffin, sometimes a muffin is actually all I want.

You know?

This recipe came from here.

2 1/2 cups almond flour
3 large eggs
1/4 cup honey
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup unsweetened apple sauce
1/2 cup shredded carrots

1. Preheat oven to 350
2. Mix together dry ingredients. 
3. Add in beaten eggs, honey, vanillla, applesauce, and carrots. Mix well.
4. Grease a muffin pan with coconut oil. Do it well--these babies stick!
5. Pour in muffin batter.
6. Bake at 350 for 35-45 minutes.

Enjoy them for breakfast. With tea.


  1. Hi! I just found your blog :) How funny - they were talking about going paleo at cross-fit today. Have you felt a difference yet?

  2. that actually looks good. i am not really a muffin girl either.

    maybe i will try them.

    and i think it is so funny that we all [jenna included] have that mug from anthro...that store is addicting.

  3. Hey Megan! Found your blog from Jenni!! Love it! Also, you have inspired me to go Paleo. I am on my 3rd day. We'll see how it goes. Looking forward to trying all your recipes. xoxo Celine

  4. yes, i know precisely what you mean. and also, i need that mug so effing bad. DAMMIT.


  5. So yummy!! Ps. I tagged you!!

  6. So funny- I am not paleo, but I just posted a vegan carrot muffin recipe this am, and immediately after posting checked out your blog, to see a carrot muffin recipe. Great minds... Also, I would do anything to go back and walk around JMU's campus for a while (my alma mater). Gotta love those gorgeous Virginia college campuses...

  7. Looks great, as do all your recipes. I just can't get my head round anything almond related being thought of as paleo.

  8. Looks great, as do all your recipes. I just can't come to terms with anything almond related being paleo. I don't have any real issue with nuts that are eaten raw but when they are ground up and heated then all those delicious healthy fats get turned into toxic carcinogens. Yes, as you can probably guess I don't get invited to very many parties.

  9. Sounds great! How many muffins did this recipe make?
