What can you do when you accidently add a 5lb bag of carrots to your grocery delivery order? Make carrot muffins! This recipe will be on repeat for the next few weeks not only because I have more carrots than I can handle but because these muffins are super moist, delicious, and take no time to make. they also freeze great! I love to keep a batch or two in the freezer and put a muffin in my kid’s snack. My husband also loves having a carrot muffin with his morning tea. This is an “everybody wins” situation. Did I mention you don’t need a stand mixer or electric beaters? Win-win.

I recently fell in love with cardamom, and I am taking any chance I have to use it. You can taste just a little something something in these muffins that makes the extra special to me but of course, it is optional. Just cinnamon if perfectly delicious too.
These muffins rise quite a bit. Try not to overfill the muffin tin. The batter should make exactly 12 muffins but if you think you have too much batter just make a couple more muffins. The more the marrier.
I love to add different things to these muffins like chopped pecans or even a little sweetened shredded coconut. All versions are delicious.
