Ingredients

  • 2 cups grated carrots
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • ½ cup honey
  • 2 eggs
  • 1-5 oz container of Greek yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 ¾ cups  whole wheat flour
  • 1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 and line a muffin tin with liners before spraying with nonstick spray.
  2. Combine the carrots and the wet ingredients in a large bowl.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients before folding into the wet ingredients.
  4. Scoop into the muffin liners and bake for 18-20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.

Recipe Notes

  • To make scooping the muffins easier, use a spring loaded ice cream scoop!
  • 2 cups was about 4 medium-large carrots for me.
  • Instead of grating, break carrots into large chunks and pulse in a food processor (or use the grating attachment) until fine.
  • Another option is buying bagged grated carrots.
