Delicious carrot cake (muffins) / Heerlijke worteltaart (muffins)

These are the best healthy carrot cake muffins I have ever tasted. It took a while before I got the recipe optimized, but here it is. You can make it either as a cake or as muffins. I love it when carrot cake has dark dough, when you can taste the nuts (that’s why I’ve included the hazelnut flour) and when it is very rich in ingredients (goji berries, hazelnuts, raisins). If you like these things as well, you will love this recipe.
