Carrot Cake Muffins With Cinnamon Glaze

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Redsie

Yummy muffins that taste like carrot cake and are filled with pineapple and coconut. The glaze is tangy and goes great with these muffins! Recipe given by a friend. Next time I make them, I will try cutting down the sugar and using applesauce instead of the oil. Please let me know if you try them!

The taste is very good. They're moist. It's just that they didn't raise a lot. I don't know why. I didn't do the glaze. Thanks Redsie :) Made for 123 hit wonders.
