Whisk egg whites with yogurt and oil in separate bowl. Add pineapple chunks, carrots, raisins, and almonds and combine thoroughly but don't over stir. Add into the flour mixture and combine till just mixed together.


Divide batter between muffin tin cups. Bake for about 25 minutes or until golden brown.

Notes

Coming in at only 131 calories each (for 12 smaller muffins), these carrots are moist and delicious. I am working on the flavors (they spices don't come through as much as I'd like), but think of this as a blank canvas for you to improve on the recipe! I am certain that with the use of more spices, these will be a surefire winner!

A dash of local for every season
