Carrot and Chocolate chips joined together in a muffin sounds strange? Not to me.
The carrot cake I based my recipe on is the version they make in Brazil, and that you find on almost every hotel as part of the breakfast options.
I lived in Brazil for 8 months, and this makes me feel there. I do love Brazil and I miss it a lot. Usually I go there every year but for a couple of reasons I haven’t been there in almost 3 years.
These muffins have got nothing to do with the spiced carrot cake American/UK/South African style, with the cream cheese frosting.
It is soft, bright yellow/orange and guess what? You can make it all in a BLENDER!!! How easy and awesome is that? In my description I did not use the blender because I was doing something else in it, but you can totally do it.
The original has a chocolate ganache on top, but in this one I gave it my twist (among others to be able to make it keto) and used chocolate chips.
It is a very simple and delicious recipe that I hope you all enjoy
