Tips For Making Paleo Carrot Cake Muffins 

  • Shred the carrots finely. The thinner the carrots, the better. The carrots will be evenly distributed throughout the muffins, and they will bake evenly. 
  • I used coconut sugar to make these muffins. Feel free to use maple syrup or honey to make the carrot cake muffins if you don’t like coconut sugar. 
  • I used melted butter to make carrot cake muffins. I ran out of coconut oil, so I used butter. Additionally, butter is much cheaper than coconut oil. You can use coconut oil if desired to make this carrot cake muffin recipe. 

How To Store Paleo Carrot Cake Muffins

You can store these paleo carrot cake muffins in an airtight container on your countertop for 2-3 days. You can also store them in the fridge for 4-5 days.  

You can also freeze these carrot cake muffins. Let them cool completely once they are baked. Place the carrot muffins into a freezer-safe airtight container or ziplock bag. Place the carrot cake muffins in the freezer, and they will last for 3 months. 

To reheat the carrot cake muffins, let them thaw on the countertop for 3-4 hours. Heat the carrot muffins in the microwave for 45 seconds to a minute, and enjoy!
