My carrot almond muffins with chocolate drops are something similar to a kids’ snack called “Camille”. If you go in Italy, you will find it in every supermarket. They are simple carrot muffins with orange juice. My muffins are made without orange juice but with delicious chocolate drops in it!
In order to create this recipe, I started from another recipe which I posted here some time ago: the carrot almond cake.
I would like to point out to you that these carrot almond muffins with chocolate drops are made without using butter or any other oil.
