Immune Boosting Spice Muffins

These Immune Boosting Spice Muffins hold a special place in my heart. The recipe has been passed down from my mom, and I've cherished them since as long as I can remember. Now, as the torchbearer of this recipe, I still adore them just as much, if not more. They are bursting with a delightful blend of spices that bring to mind the flavors of carrot cake. The best part? These muffins are completely clean and guilt-free. They make for a convenient breakfast option, and what's even better is that they freeze exceptionally well.
If you're a muffin enthusiast seeking a cake-like indulgence with a generous dose of sweetness, these may not be the muffins for you. However, if you value both healthfulness and deliciousness, or if you're aspiring to do so, you're in for a treat. The muffins require a medley of spices, most of which you probably already have on hand. There might be a few ingredients you're missing, but I assure you, the time and effort invested in making these muffins are absolutely worthwhile. 

Tips:   Gluten- free Oats can be used to keep these Muffins completely gluten-free, if preferred. 

A regular muffin tin works best, in my opinion, if you like a little crunchy exterior on the muffins and moist in the middle. A Silicon muffin pan doesn't produce the desired result for these.   Grease the muffin pan with coconut oil, or any other healthy cooking oil. 

Makes 12 Muffins.
