Cream Cheese Carrot Muffins

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by FrenchBunny

This is such a delicious moist carrot muffin. I think it is fantastic with a cup of tea in the morning. I got it from the Taste of home site and am putting it here so I don't misplace it.. The best thing is you don't have to grate any carrots.
