Roasted Carrot Breakfast Muffins

Roasted Carrot Breakfast Muffins

Roasted carrots for breakfast? Why not! I was considering making carrot cake or carrot cake muffins but to be honest I really need to eat healthier…especially with the holidays coming up. So roasting carrots and popping them in a breakfast muffin seemed just the thing to do…thankfully they were really really good!

1 tablespoon chia seeds + 1/4 cup water (optional)

Heat the oven to 450°F. In a mixing bowl toss the sliced carrots with a drizzle of olive oil and a pinch of salt. Place on a baking sheet and roast 15 minutes until nicely caramelized. Remove from oven and cool; dice.

      1. Yep! Highest known plant source of omega 3 and don’t have to be ground like flax. I keep them in a salt shaker with big holes and shake them into yogurt every day and other things. Loved seeing them in your recipe! 🙂
