Not-So-Paleo Carrot Cake Muffins

...butter technically isn't Paleo, which means I could never be 100% paleo.


Butter is a real food however, so I am totally on board with that!


I wanted to make some muffins to switch things up from our usual scrambled egg breakfast, and I wanted a muffin that sneaks in some veggies while I was at it.


These muffins fit the bill. The butter is always optional, but required in my home. It's kind of like the icing that tops it off to nicely!



This recipe makes 2 dozen. You can freeze one dozen and enjoy the other. It'll make breakfast easier in the future when you have things to pull out of the freezer!
