Low Carb Carrot & Apple Muffins

by | Mar 3, 2013 | Breakfast, Snacks and Desserts | 0 comments

Looking for a healthy grain free and gluten free alternative to muffins for a friend of mine who is dealing with some health issues, I decided to throw these ingredients together and see what came of it. The result was a moist, tender delicious muffin that is low-glycemic and full of fiber and nutrients. The carrots and the apple added a great flavor and the addition of fresh ginger makes it anti-inflammatory and easier on the stomach. A perfect breakfast or snack!
