How to make it
- 1.Preheat oven to 350f degrees. Grease a 12 cup Muffin tin or use muffin liners.
- 2.Mix flours, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg together.
- 3.In a separate bowl, mix oil, honey, egg, chia gel, OJ, yogurt and vanilla together. Add the rolled oats and let sit while you grate the carrots.
- 4.Once the carrots are grated, add them to the wet ingredients.
- 5.Make a well in the center of the flour mixture and add the wet ingredients. Gently fold together until the flour is almost combined, add in raisons,coconut ( and other add-ins like nuts or seeds) and fold until just combined.
- 6.Spoon batter into muffin tins. Batter will completely fill the tins and mound in the center, they will only rise slightly so it will not overflow.
- 7.Bake for 20-25 minutes, until they lightly spring back when touched or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out with dry crumbs.
