Healthy carrot muffins

My healthy carrot muffins will go down a treat with anyone looking for a delicious, filling bake that is low in refined sugar. They’re packed full of nutritious ingredients and suitable for vegans. As they’re nut free too they are perfect for kids lunch boxes although I must admit to eating as many of them as my kids do!
