Cooler temps call for a new Autumn treat… with a perfect muffin-top!
I can’t believe it’s been over 5 months since I last posted a muffin recipe! Time to make that right with these new Carrot, Pineapple & Walnut Muffins. Bursting with lots of cinnamon, and the moist richness of carrot, these are muffins the whole family will love!
So I admit, I cheated a bit. I overfill my muffin cups so I get lots of that super-crispy “muffin top”. I love it so much, I just make 10 muffins instead of 12!
These little gems are super-moist, which let’s face it, is a must. The last thing you need is a dry muffin. These Carrot, Pineapple & Walnut babies are perfection. Excellent as a snack muffin, or iced with cream cheese frosting and treated like a cupcake!
Really simple to make these are delicious muffins the whole family will love. Make ahead, they freeze really well for later. Enjoy!

Can you make these gluten free
I don’t know Denise, I don’t bake gluten free. Having said that I would think that substituting almond flour for the all-purpose would work out fine.
Denise there is a gluten free flour on the market that is transferable for regular flour and it does bake up quite well.
Super deliCious and moist! Thanks!
