Expert Tips

You can freeze these muffins for up to 2 months.

Directions

  • 1 Preheat the oven to 350 °F. Use cupcake or muffin liners to line a muffin pan.
  • 2 In a large bowl, finely grate the carrots until you have accumulated about 3/4 cup.
  • 3 Add the eggs, oil, sugar, cinnamon, ginger and salt, and mix well.
  • 4 Incorporate the flour and baking powder to the carrot mix, stir and add the apple sauce or yogurt. Thoroughly combine.
  • 5 Divide the batter among 12 muffins and sprinkle each one with sugar. Bake for 22-24 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
  • 6 Remove the muffins from the pan and let cool on a cooling rack. Enjoy while warm.

I'm not exactly a morning person. That's why I always try to freeze some breakfast or snack options that I can take out in the morning and send to school with my kids without having to cook on the spot. One of my favorite recipes is this muffin one; it's a great way to incorporate fruits or veggies, whole-grain flour and just a dash of sugar in one treat. I prefer to make these from scratch. Try this recipe out for yourself; you'll be surprised just how easy it is to follow, and how well the muffins thaw out as a great snack alternative.
