Best Recipe of the Week: Carrot-Apple-Almond Muffins (Grain-free, Egg-free, Dairy-Free)

I generally avoid muffins because they're either crazy unhealthy or hard, dry, tasteless hockey pucks. Not these, m'friends. Not these. These were so good, I didn’t even have time to take a photo of them before they were all gobbled up. Next time I’m definitely doubling the recipe.

This recipe was inspired by/adapted from this recipe on Elana’s Pantry blog (one of my favs, highly recommend checking her out for some seriously fabulous recipes).
