Raw Carrot Coconut Muffins

I can imagine that by now most of you have already made your Christmas preparations: Christmas trees decorated; gifts wrapped; festive menus well planned. But if you are one of those people who look for last minute inspiration, here comes a simple raw recipe for a Christmas Day breakfast. 


My raw carrot coconut muffins are very easy to make and can be made day or two in advance. And the best thing is, they not only nutritious and healthy, they help you save money since the main ingredient is the carrot pulp that is left over after juicing carrots.

This simple and wholesome recipe combines health benefits of carrots, coconut oil, raw honey, lemon juice and ginger. You can indulge without guilt.

The recipe below makes five small muffins. They are very rich and I usually can eat only one. If you want to make more, simply multiply the amounts given below. 

Ingredients:
  • 1 cup carrot pulp that is left over from juicing ( you can, of course, use grated carrots)
  • 1/3 cup coconut flour
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil (melted in warm water bath)
  • 1/3 cup raw honey (I used delicate lemon blossom honey)
  • 1/2 cup raw coconut flakes
  • 2 Tbsp freshly pressed lemon juice
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp ground dried ginger
  • pinch pink Himalaya salt
  • 1/4 cup raw coconut flakes for garnish


Method:
  • Place all the ingredients in a food processor and mix into a firm dough using the S blade. If you do not have a food processor mix all the ingredients in a large bowl and, using a spatula or your clean hands, knead the ingredients together until the dough becomes firm and allows you to form small balls that do not fall apart.
  • Portion out 1/3 cup-size balls and roll them in coconut flakes. 
  • Place each muffin in a paper muffin cup and dust it with coconut flakes. Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow... Enjoy in good company!


Christmas 
may be a day of feasting, 
or of prayer, 
but always it will be 
a day of remembrance  
a day in which we think 
of everything we have ever loved.
