Eggless Butterless Carrot & Orange Muffins

Once summer starts here, we dont get oranges as they are seasonal fruits here, before the oranges gets disappear from my nearby fruit stall, i want to make some muffins to pack them for our after lunch snacks. Since i had some carrots sitting my fridge, i baked out this orange and carrot muffins. They came out extremely good and everyone just enjoyed them. Mild orange flavour with grated carrot makes excellent spongy and very moist muffins to enjoy thoroughly with a cup of tea or coffee. You can start your day very well with these muffins as they are loaded with healthy stuffs in it. They are eggless and also butterless, obviously a fabulous guilt free muffins.These muffins makes an incredible dessert when served along with few scoops of icecream or else simply topped with cream cheese frosting.
