Apricot Carrot Muffins are my first attempt at baking without granulated sugars. I used the fresh apricot jam from a previous video to help sweeten these muffins. If you're taste buds aren't accustomed to sugar free foods, you're gonna find this recipe to be bland. For those who are already there, please give this recipe a try. Let me know what you think (with positive criticism), to help me make it better.
