Carrot and Apple Muffins

If you’re anything like me you’re always trying to find extra ways to sneak a few more fruits and veggies into your diet. These muffins call for an apple and a cup of grated carrot so its a good way to sneak in some extra nutrients and boost the fibre content.
This is a gluten free recipe but it can be easily converted to a regular muffin recipe by adding 1 1/2 cups of regular flour as opposed to the 2 types of gluten free flour and by not adding the xantham gum. In a non-gluten free recipe you also don’t need as much fat so feel free to substitute the oil for apple sauce at a 1:1 ratio!
