Carrot Raisin Breakfast Mini-Muffins

This is reblog of an older post. I chose to revive this for Mother’s Day because food always remind’s me of my Mom who was a great cook and passed along her skills and recipes to me. Whenever Spring rolls around I think of inviting a few friends over for brunch, which Mom did every year. This is a recipe we discussed one year when she asked me for ideas.

Have a Happy Mother’s Day on Sunday and if she is still living, call your Mom!

These healthy little gluten free, low fat muffins will satisfy a sweet tooth while also providing a healthy dose of fiber and protein.

1 cup shredded carrots
1 c. raisins
½ c. chopped walnuts (optional)
1 c. buckwheat flour
1 c. sorghum flour
1 T. baking powder
1 t. cinnamon

Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
