Spiced Carrot Muffins image


  • Line 12 cups (each 2 1/2 inches wide) of a standard muffin tin with paper liners; set aside. In a large bowl, stir together flour, sugar, pumpkin-pie spice, baking powder, baking soda, and salt; set aside.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together yogurt, butter, and egg. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and add yogurt mixture. Stir until just combined. Fold in carrots.
  • Spoon batter into prepared muffin cups. (If desired, muffins can be baked immediately in a 375-degree oven for about 20 minutes.) Freeze until firm, about 30 minutes, then cover tin with plastic wrap, and freeze until ready to bake, up to 3 months.
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Bake muffins (still frozen) until a toothpick inserted in center of one comes out clean, about 30 minutes. Transfer to a rack. Serve warm or at room temperature.

1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup sugar
2 teaspoons pumpkin-pie spice
2 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cups plain yogurt
4 tablespoons melted unsalted butter
1 large egg
2 cups peeled, shredded carrots (about 5 medium)


Shredded carrots, rolled oats, and plenty of warm, cozy spices make up these tender-yet-hearty muffins. They're like a hug in a muffin wrapper!

Spiced Carrot Oatmeal Muffins image


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease or place cupcake wrappers in a standard-size, 12-cup muffin pan.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, 1 cup oats, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, and ginger.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the milk, applesauce, brown sugar, canola oil, egg, and carrots.
  • Pour the wet ingredients over the dry and whisk just until all ingredients are incorporated.
  • Divide the mixture between the muffin cups. I like to use an ice cream scoop for this - so easy! Cups should be filled just about to the top.
  • Bake until muffin tops spring back when poked and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 20-22 minutes
  • Allow to cool for about 10 minutes before removing from the muffin tin.
  • Serve plain or with butter (or vegan butter) if desired.
  • Store in an airtight container at room temperature for 2 - 3 days or freeze.

These fast and easy to make muffins are chock full of flavor. You can make these in miniature, giant, or standard size. This recipe can go either way. Tiny muffins bake quickly and have lots of browned edges that appeal to the "crunchers" in the crowd, but you have to be careful not to overbake them or they can be dry. Giant muffins take a bit longer to bake but are satisfyingly moist and crumbly. I really like these.

Carrot Spice Muffins image


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F Grease 12 regular muffin cups, 36 miniature muffins cups, or 6 giant muffin cups, or line them with paper baking cups.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, carrot, apple, raisins, and pecans until all ingredients are well mixed.
  • I don't mix with a spoon. I use my hands, by lifting and sifting through my fingers until combined. I find mixing with a spoon makes the dough too heavy to mix with the liquid ingredients.
  • In another bowl, combine the eggs, oil, and vanilla. Stir into the flour mixture only until blended. Fill the prepared muffin cups three quarters full with the batter. For regular muffins I kept filling them to the top until I used up all the batter and they came out great.
  • Bake until a wooden skewer inserted in the center of the muffins comes out clean. It may take longer then time specified. For regular muffins, bake 20 to 25 minutes; for miniature muffins, bake 15 to 20 minutes; for giant muffins, bake 25 to 30 minutes. Remove from pans and serve warm or cool on a wire rack.
  • Makes 12 regular muffins, 6 giant muffins, or 36 miniature muffins.

This recipe is from 'Robin Hood Home Baking', a book that I got for Christmas several years ago. The first time I tasted these muffins I knew that I would no longer have to search for another carrot muffin recipe-these are the best! I followed the directions exactly, but omitted the walnuts. Sometimes I use half whole wheat flour too. I always double the recipe and try to sneak a few away for the freezer;)

This is the low fat version of a delicious recipe posted by Roosie, #98447. I loved it so much, it is one of the most delicious muffins I have ever made. I am on a pretty strict diet right now, and really wanted to know the nutritional info of these muffins, made with the lowest fat options. The prep time doesn't include grating the carrot, but if you have a food processor, it only takes a minute or two.
