OMG, these flavors sounds so good, and they are healthy, what more could one want. Thanks for sharing your creative inspirations over at Sunday's Best.
I feel so bad that you didn't get added to the collection! I never received an email from you telling me about your post.
Your muffins sound wonderful, and as always, your photos just about knock my socks off. You have such a talent!
Thanks for your kind words on my weblog.
On your weblog I find delicious recipes. I will sure take some time to look at them and maybe try some.
Best regards, Alyt
I think this looks as good as it gets!

These look divine and healthy too! Thank you so much for sharing at Mix it up Monday 🙂
Thanks for linking up @CountryMommaCooks…Have a wonderful Sunday:)
Lorraine, you get a thumbs up from me, too. Both look delicious. I've got a bag of carrots that are supposed to go to the juicer tomorrow, but you are tempting me! Hugs and happy wishes, my friend.
Yummy! I like baking with carrots and these muffins look just wonderful. Thank you for sharing the recipe.
P.S. I'm doing much better. Thanks.

I love these flavors. Thanks for sharing. Your pics are stunning. I would love for you to share at Bacon Time's weekly Friday to Monday linky.
While I, too, believe in healthy eating, I also believe that it is important to enjoy a treat now and again. You're right – one fabulous bite is more my preference than a whole slice of so-so.
These look yummy….I'd like to invite you to share them@ CountryMommaCooks Saturday Link and Greet Party(now-Sunday)…..have a wonderful weekend:)
Oh this looks really yummy I might try and do this with a gluten free flour this week. I have been trying not to buy snacks and make them instead for the kids.They love muffins and cookies… Thanks for sharing Love Heather
