Craisin Carrot Muffins

Craisin Carrot Muffins are a very filling muffin. They are a little sweet with a ton of flavor.


I worked at a guest ranch in Colorado one year.  It was a great experience! I loved living there. It was far away from most everyone and we were way up in the mountains.  During the summer, the ranch hosted guests for a week at a time. During the winter, guests came for the day to ride snowmobiles. During the summer, we had a one week menu that we repeated each week.  One of the dinners we served was a chuck wagon meal. We had the World’s Best BBQ Pork Ribs, bbq chicken and these lovely Craisin Carrot Muffins. I absolutely love these muffins.

Craisin Carrot Muffins seems like such an odd combination, but they are perfect. The recipe uses the basic muffin recipe that I have shared before. That muffin recipe is so versatile. 

While we are on the topic of guest ranches, I want to strongly encourage you to take your family on this type of vacation at least once in your life.  It is so much fun!
