#WCW What's Cookin Wednesday; Healthy Morning Muffins!

This week's #WCW What's Cookin' Wednesday from our OWN Wellness Coach, Delia, focuses on breakfast... and how to impress your coffee guests! Enjoy! 

This past weekend my Mother- in -Law came over for breakfast. I love when she comes because she tells the most wonderful stories- all I have to do is keep her coffee cup full! To go along with that java, I made some of my favorite healthy muffins! 

This recipe uses coconut flour which is gluten free, full of dietary fiber and protein. It also has
medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs) - essential protective fats with antiviral, antimicrobial and antifungal properties. MCTs have also been shown to boost  metabolism!

6 eggs
½ cup butter or coconut oil
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
½ cup blackstrap molasses
¼ cup pure maple syrup
½ cup coconut flour
½ tsp sea salt
¼ tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp ginger
½ tsp ground cloves
3 cups shredded carrots
½ cup raisins(optional)

Preheat oven to 350.
Whisk eggs, butter or oil, vanilla, molasses, and maple syrup together in a large bowl. Sift in the coconut flour, salt, baking soda, and spices. Add carrots and raisins and combine together. 

In a muffin tin, scoop ¼ cup of the batter into each spot. I was able to make 17 muffins out of this batch.
Bake for 35-40 minutes(I pulled mine out at 34 minutes..perfect!) ENJOY!
