MSPI Friendly Muffins

There is nothing quite like a muffin. Except, that is, an MSPI friendly muffin! The hardest part of being dairy and soy free, other than giving up cheese, has been being limited in options for store-bought baked goods. But no worries, I’ve been working on it! After trying many recipes, this muffin recipe has emerged as our family favorite: it’s tasty, filling and uses ingredients I always have on hand. Nothing quite like a simple muffin recipe to start your day!

MSPI Friendly Muffins  


  • 2 carrots, shredded (1-1.5 cups)
  • 1 1/2 cups whole-wheat flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 egg*
  • 1 cup applesauce, or other fruit purée**


1) In large bowl shred carrots.

2) Add dry ingredients, then wet, and mix together.

3) Spoon into muffin liners. 

4) Bake at 350 F approximately 25 minutes  


*To make egg-free, add an extra teaspoon of baking soda, and finish off with a tablespoon of vinegar.

**I usually use unsweetened applesauce, but have also made these using pumpkin, strawberry/banana and apple/berries purées. Essentially any sweet puree or baby food you have on hand should work.
