My Best Carrot Muffin Recipe

This hearty, healthy carrot muffin recipe is equal parts breakfast and treat.  Take a fresh batch into the office and earn a (good) reputation!  If you’ll be taking them to the office or anywhere else, prepare and pack the muffins and the frosting separately, then frost them once you reach your destination.

Warning: do NOT use these cooking oils!

This may actually suprise you.. Some of these oils are healthy and some are VERY unhealthy -- soybean oil, olive oil, coconut oil, corn oil, etc... Let's take a closer look. (click here)
