Ingredients

  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup - whole Wheat pastry flour
  • 1 cup - all purpose flour
  • 1 cup - packed Brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup - granulated Sugar
  • 2 tsp - baking soda
  • 1 tsp - Cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp - fresh ground Nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp - Ginger
  • 1/2 cup - Apple sauce (unsweetened)
  • 1 tsp - vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cups - shredded peeled Carrots
  • 3/4 cup - golden Raisins
  • 1/4 cup - chopped crystallized Ginger

How to Make Carrot Spice Muffins

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together flours, sugars, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger until well combined.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together eggs, apple sauce, and vanilla.
  • Pour mixture into the dry ingredients and stir until combined.
  • Add in the carrots, raisins, and crystallized ginger - stirring to evenly distribute them.
  • Pour batter into a 9x13" baking dish coated with non-stick spray.
  • If doing muffins, line the pan with muffin liners and spray with baking spray.
  • Spoon batter into the cups (I use an ice cream scooper. It's the perfect size) until around 2/3 full.
  • Bake for around 20 minutes.
  • Check to be sure that it springs back or a toothpick comes out clean.
  • Bake until the centre springs back when lightly touched, or a toothpick placed in the centre comes out mostly clean - a few moist crumbs attached is okay.
  • Remove and let cool on a wire rack before cutting.
