How To Make Cinnamon Muffin Recipe

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. and line 16 cupcake cups from a cupcake pan with foil or paper liners (I used foil liners).
  2. Place eggs, pureed carrots or apple sauce, greek yogurt, sugar and grated carrots into a large mixing bowl. Heat coconut oil in the microwave to soften to liquid or near liquid and place into mixing bowl being careful not to allow the coconut to harden. Mix to combine. Add flour, cinnamon, ginger, salt, baking soda and baking powder, stirring to combine.
  3. Fill each liner 3/4 full with batter. Sprinkle tops with cinnamon and turbinado sugar if desired. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until toothpick comes clean from center. Remove and let cool. Serve warm or at room temperature.

I like to use a medium sized cookie scoop to fill the cupcake liners. A spoon works fine too.

    If this is your resolution this year, then it might be time to step
    back and reconsider your vacation plans. Boracay
    has some of the best dive sites not only in the Philippines but in the
    world. Bright metals for murky waters will let fish attack without hesitation.

  2. Emily @ Life on Food

    I love carrot cake. It just screams Springtime. These look fabulous. If only we could eat all of our veggies as cake.

  3. Jeanette | Jeanette's Healthy Living

    Love these healthy muffins – haven’t seen these veggie mix-ins, but what a great idea for sneaking in some veggies!

  4. Laura @ Laura's Culinary Adventures

    I’m a huge fan of carrot cake, so I’m sure these muffins are right up my alley! I have never heard of this product before. It sounds intersting.

  5. Ellen Young

    These look/sound amazing! Can’t wait to make them. How much is in one package of the purée packs? When I add ‘sneak’ veggies to recipes I just use jarred baby food. Always has worked well.

    1. Jenny

      There are 9 pouches in a box (3 each of carrot, butternut squash, and spinach). So, three pouches equals 1-1/4 cup of vegetables or each pouch is about .41 of a cup. Cullen

  6. Sommer @ASpicyPerspective

    It is like having a mini carrot cake that you do not have to share with anyone else! 😉 Love the carrots that are in these muffins! Pinning!

  7. Heather of Kitchen Concoctions

    YUM!! I love that you not only used the Green Giant pureed carrot pouch but also used freshly grated carrots in these muffins as well!

  8. Liz@Virtually Homemade

    What a brilliant idea! It makes that extra step so much easier. I’m sure there’s added flavor as well as added health benefits 🙂

  9. Liz @ The Lemon Bowl

    My boys would LOVE these healthy muffins!! I’ll have to keep my eye out for these add ins!

  10. Meagan @ A Zesty Bite

    I have not seen this veggie add ins. Definitely will check these out. Love these muffins.

  11. Rochelle @ Oh So Sweet Baker

    These muffins look delicious. I especially love the colour of the batter before they go in. Since they have veggies, they must count as one of your five a day?
