Ingredients
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 425˚F
  2. In medium bowl, mix together the dry ingredients (almond flour, coconut flour, coconut, xanthan gum, salt, Pyure Stevia sweetener, baking powder and the baking soda and set aside.
  3. In a food processor or mixer blend together the butter, coconut oil, eggs, and vanilla extract until well blended. Add in the carrots and pineapple. Pulse a few times to incorporate.
  4. Add the dry ingredients and process just until you have a well mixed batter.
  5. Fold in the Pecans.
  6. With a spoon or a cookie scoop, portion out equal amounts of batter into a 12 cup muffin tin lined with muffin cups.
  7. Bake at 425F for 8 minutes then reduce heat to 350°F and bake 14-16 minutes more or until tops are nicely browned and toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. *Baking the muffins at 425°F for those few minutes activates the baking powder/soda and makes the muffins rise nice and high. When they’re finished baking at the lower temperature you will have nicely browned, rounded muffin tops.
  8. Cool on a baking rack and then store in an airtight container or freeze.
