Cherry Carrot Orange Muffins

I had some carrots and oranges that were about to go bad last week so I decided to get creative and make some muffins!  I didn’t follow a recipe so I was unsure of how these would turn out, but they ended up being great.  They taste and look like early fall to me and Jack loved them too (Dave not so much…)

I know it seems like an odd flavor combo but if you like citrus and tart fruit make these!


1 1/2 C Flour

1 C Brown Sugar

1 Egg

1 Cup shredded Carrots

Zest of 2 oranges

1/2 C Orange Juice

1/2-1 C Chopped dried Cherries (trader joes has very tart delicious ones!)

2 Tablespoons Chia Seeds (can substitute for poppy seeds or leave them out completely)


1/2 C Rolled Oats

2 Tablespoons Melted Butter

Brown Sugar (I eyeballed it just make sure that the mixture is thick and not running)


1.  Preheat Oven to 350

2.  Mix all ingredients together

3.  Pour into Muffin Tins

4.  (optional) sprinkle top of unbaked muffins with topping

5.  Bake at 350 for 15-18 minutes (mini muffins)  Bake longer if you’re using a standard sized muffin tin.
