Carrot muffins

I promised Bella I would make muffins for her to bring to school, and since I know she loves carrot cake I made a carrot care inspired muffin, which I would presume is a lot healthier. These muffins made my house smell so good and even reminded me of Christmas. Hard to have that feeling when it’s in the upper 80’sF outside.
