Carrot Cake Seed & Nut Muffins (& Bread)

This is a twist on the base recipe – Seeded Nut Bread.  Adding warm cooking spices like cinnamon and ginger, shredded carrots and sweet raisins turns it into a delicious Carrot Cake Seed & Nut Muffin.  Like the base recipe, I call it a seeded nut bread or muffin, since there is no wheat grain – just seeds and nuts.

Seeded Nut Loaf (or Muffins)

These little loaves are a delicious and healthy alternative to bread.  I try not to call this bread, since there is really no flour or rising agent, so I decided to call it Seeded Nut Loaf, because really that’s what it is.  It’s great for breakfast or a snack.  I love avocado spread on a slice.  Hummus and almond butter are also delicious.  You can easily use this when making open face sandwiches and toast.

Apple Cinnamon Muffins

Adapted from Ratio, by Michael Ruhlman

This recipe utilizes the traditional muffin/quick bread ratio.  It worked out great.  I cannot remember if I’ve used this one yet, since I don’t often make muffins.  Possibly I used this recipe for my pumpkin muffins.
