Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F.

  3. Whisk together the almond flour, tigernut flour, coconut flour, arrowroot powder, baking soda, and cinnamon in a large mixing bowl.
  4. Next, pour the liquid ingredients from the food processor bowl into the dry ingredients in the large mixing bowl. Stir to combine. Add the raisins and shredded carrots and stir one more time.
  5. Spray a muffin tin with nonstick cooking spray or wipe lightly with coconut oil. Pour the batter evenly between the muffin wells.
  6. Sprinkle pumpkin seeds or shredded coconut on top of the muffins, if desired.
  7. Bake at 350°F for 40-50 minutes, or until the tops are golden brown. Let cool slightly before serving.
