These carrot muffins have taken a long journey.  This recipe is based on my Mother-In-Laws much loved Carrot Kugel.  Her Kugel is absolutely delicious!  Unfortunately, it does not fit into my current dietary restrictions.  Over the last few years I have tweaked her recipe.  I first subbed her margarine for coconut oil.  I then switched out the white flour for almond flour.  Finally I took out the sugar and added honey.  The problem I always had was the center of the kugel, which was cooked in an 8X8 pan would not cook through.  I finally had the break through this Rosh Hashanah – muffin tins!!!  With a smaller amount of batter, the kugel is able to cook all the way through.  The kids are also more likely to eat them since they are in muffins!  This is a great side dish to a meat meal because it is non-dairy.
