Carrot Cake Muffins with Cinnamon Glaze

on February 25, 2013

carrot cake muffin

I made these muffins yesterday for me and the little one and they are heavenly! It is so nice to have a sweet treat with a hot cup of coffee and homemade non-dairy creamer. I’ll include that recipe too at the bottom.

Heat oven to 375 degrees and grease your muffin tins.  I used these really cute silicone muffin cups from Ikea:

I started with a Namaste Gluten Free Spice Cake Mix. It does contain Xanthan Gum but I think that is unavoidable in gluten free baking.

 

I mixed the following wet ingredients together in a large mixing bowl:

3 Eggs

1/3 C grapeseend oil

Then gradually stirred in the cake mix until well blended.

To the batter I stirred in:

grated carrot – about a cup

raisins – a handful

crushed pineapple –  8 oz. can in it’s own juice

flaked coconut – about 1/2 cup

 

Bake at 375 degrees for 20-25 minutes.  If using a dark, coated, mini muffin tin you may need to shorten the baking time a little bit. They are done when a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

 

For the cinnamon glaze I combined:

1/2 C powdered sugar (I use Wholesome Sweeteners Fair Trade Certified Organic Powdered Sugar)

1 T coconut milk (add more as needed to reach desired consistency)

1/2 tsp. cinnamon

Mix until smooth and refrigerate until thickened then drizzle over the top of the muffins.

I had them for breakfast this morning with a hot cup of coffee, some homemade non-dairy creamer and a banana. Yum!

 

For the non-dairy creamer:

Add 1 14 oz. can Thai Kitchen Coconut Milk to a small sauce pan.

Blend in 3 T local raw honey

Add in 2 tsp. vanilla extract (make sure it is pure vanilla extract – just vanilla beans & alcohol without added corn syrup)

Once well blended allow to cool then refrigerate.
