These carrot muffins were *delish* not too sweet, a nice crispy crust on the outside with a soft tender inside. Give them a try…

Carrot Muffins

  • 1 1/2 cup unbleached flour
  • 1 t cinnamon
  • 1/2 t baking soda
  • 1/4 t salt
  • 1/4 t baking powder
  • 1/4 t nutmeg (use fresh, the flavor is *so* much better)
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup shredded carrots
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
  • 1/2 cup raisins (optional)

Sift together the first 6 ingredients. In another bowl, stir together next 5 ingredients. Mix flour mixture into carrot mixture. Add nuts and raisins. Spoon into greased muffin pan. Bake 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes, until golden brown. Enjoy!
