Sven’s Carrot and Spice Muffin Bites
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon nutmeg
- ¾ cup vegetable oil
- ½ teaspoon cloves
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 1 cup sugar
- ¼ pound carrots (2 cups coarsely grated carrot)
- 3 large eggs
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- Mini muffin tray
- 1 package of cream cheese (softened)
- 1 box confectioner sugar
- 1 tablespoon melted butter
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, sift together flour, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and salt.
Coarsely grate two cups of carrot. Add grated carrot to the flour mixture and toss to coat.
In a separate bowl, whisk together eggs, sugar, vegetable oil and vanilla. Add egg mixture to flour mixture and fold together until combined.
Grease your mini muffin trey if it is not non-stick. Spoon the muffin batter into the muffin cups until flush with the top of the tray.
Bake for 15 minutes. Remove from oven and remove muffins from tray to cool on a rack.
(Optional) To make the cream cheese frosting, whip the cream cheese until fluffy and smooth. Slowly add the confectioner sugar a little at a time until combined. Add a tablespoon of melted butter and whip until incorporated.
