Gluten Free Carrot Cake Muffins

Ingredients

2 1/2 cups carrots, finely grated or chopped
1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 cup coconut or grapeseed oil

Preparation

1
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
2
Line the muffin tin with baking cups.
3
Put your chopped walnuts or pecans on a microwave safe plate and heat for about 30 seconds. Stir and heat another 30 seconds so they'll have a nice toasted flavor. Repeat this process until they are warm and fragrant.
4
Put your carrots in a food processor and finely chop them (or just finely grate) then measure out 2 1/2 C. Set aside.
5
In a large bowl whisk together all of the dry ingredients.
6
Beat the eggs until light and fluffy, then add the remaining wet ingredients.
7
Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and stir well.
8
Fold in the nuts and carrots.
9
Scoop about 1/4 C into each muffin tin.
10
Bake 15-20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into center comes out clean.
