This is usually where I’d make a clever joke about rabbits, but when it comes to my Cinnamon Almond Carrot Cake Muffins, I don’t mess around. Trust me, the joke I had was good. Real good. Make sure you hurry to the grocery store and get everything you need—don’t forget JUSTIN’S® Cinnamon Almond Butter. Okay, I didn’t really have a joke. I couldn’t think of anything.
