Recipes Notes
-Always check to make sure your ingredients/products are gluten-free and vegan (if desired) before purchasing as manufacturers may change ingredients.
-Chopped carrots can be used in place of the shredded. I found the shreds blended easier.
-Muffins can be topped with chopped nuts before baking.
