carrot muffins

Carrot Muffins Recipe:

I do not put in any nuts as it is really very expensive for me but you are more than welcome to put some in, I also do not use the frosting :)

1/4 cup (60 ml) pecans or walnuts
1 1/3 cups (320 ml) grated raw carrot (about 2-3 peeled carrots)
1 small apple, peeled and grated ( I put in the skin also as I do not see why I shouldn't ) and it is still very yummy
1 1/3 cups (175 grams) flour
3/4 cup (150 grams) granulated white sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 cup (120 ml) coconut (sweetened or unsweetened) (optional)  I do not have a lot of coconut due to me making those oats cookies for husband hehe
2 large eggs
1/2 cup (120 ml)  vegetable, or canola oil
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla essence

Cream Cheese Frosting: (optional)
1/4 cup (56 grams) unsalted butter, room temperature
4 ounces (1/2 cup) (110 grams) cream cheese, room temperature
3 tablespoons confectioners' (powdered or icing) sugar
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla essence

when they cooled off I put mine in the fridge in a bowl, it keeps it moist texture and so so yummy with tea
