Mini carrot cake muffins

Maddy's mini carrot cake muffins

Delicious and quick to make, these can be frozen and then defrosted as needed. If you want to make it gluten free, simply swap the spelt flour for a gluten free flour.

¼ cup pumpkin seeds

1 tsp egg replacer

1 cup spelt flour

1 tsp baking powder
