Recipe type: Breakfast
Serves: 12 muffins
Ingredients
  • 1 & ¾ cup whole-wheat flour (spelt flour would also work better)
  • ¼ cup brown sugar (or coconut sugar)
  • 1 tbsp ground flax seed
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ¾ tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp chia seeds
  • 1½ tsp cinnamon
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ⅓ cup maple syrup
  • 1 tsp agave nectar (or an extra tbs maple syrup)
  • ⅓ cup unsweetened applesauce
  • ½ cup vanilla coconut yogurt
  • ⅓ cup water
  • 1½ tsp vanilla extract
  • 1½ cups grated carrots (about 3 medium carrots)
  • ⅓ cup walnuts, chopped
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400F and line a muffin tin with liners (don't skip the liners or the muffins will be impossible to get out of your tin!).
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, brown sugar, ground flax seed, baking powder, baking soda, chia seeds, cinnamon, and salt.
  3. In a separate, small bowl, whisk together maple syrup, agave, applesauce, coconut yogurt, water, and vanilla). Add the wet ingredients to the dry and mix until just incorporated. Don't over-mix!
  4. Fold in the carrots and walnuts.
  5. Scoop batter into the muffin liners. You'll want to fill them right up to the top to get 12 large muffins. Bake for about 15-17 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool for at least 5 minutes.
