Ingredients

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a standard muffin pan with muffin papers.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together yogurt and honey. Add eggs, orange juice, and orange zest, whisking until smooth.
  • Stir in shredded carrots, raisins, and chopped walnuts.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda and cinnamon. Gently fold into the wet ingredients and mix until mostly incorporated – a few lumps are ok.
  • Immediately scoop into prepared muffin tins. Bake for 20-25 minutes until a cake tester comes out clean or with just a couple small crumbs.
  • Allow to cool in pan for at least 15 minutes before serving.

Notes

Storage: The muffins are best if eaten the same day, but can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge overnight. Reheat in the oven before serving.
Freezing: Freeze cooled muffins on a baking sheet before transferring to a freezer bag or container. They will keep for 3 months.
