Carrot Cake Breakfast Muffins

There are so many variations for carrot cake that I almost daren’t call these muffins “Carrot Cake” muffins. Some people like it to be really nutty or filled with a little coconut or pineapple and some people will see that I’ve added raisins to these carrot cake muffins and will be disgusted with me.
