Wake Up to the Smell of Fresh-Baked Healthy Muffins: Carrot Kamut Muffins

Guests will love waking up to freshly-baked muffins. These are made with sprouted kamut flour, which happens to be gluten-free. I shredded the carrots instead of grating them for a bit more texture. Flax seeds and hemp seeds add a bit of nutrition. These muffins come out nice and fluffy.
