This recipe is from Taste of Home and was featured in their lighten up for Fall section. I enjoy these muffins year round with a glass of milk as a healthy and delicious breakfast!

These are excellent muffins. I substituted coconut oil for the butter and I wouldn't use chocolate chips next time I make them. I don't like the combination of carrots and chocolate chips. The carrots gave it nice texture. I also used the maple syrup instead of honey.
