An unusual combination comes together in this peanut butter and carrot muffin.
My sister was telling me that one of her favorite snacks is carrots and peanut butter. I was quite surprised to hear that, to tell the truth I would have never considered eating these two things together. Have you ever eaten this combination?
That got me thinking, about baking with this combination. If it makes a great snack then why not a great muffin… right?
That is exactly what I did, I tried the combination in a muffin and the result was quite yummy. My daughter and her boyfriend were here for the weekend when I made these muffins and it turns out that our daughter’s boyfriend is another fan of peanut butter and carrots. So he was quite happy to take a few of these muffins home with him.
It turns out that peanut butter and carrots can be a great combination.
