Why I Love This Recipe

These are loosely based on an Everyday Food recipe, but I made quite a few changes to reduce the fat and sugar. I also love candied ginger, so it has been tossed in!

Ingredients You'll Need

3/4 c. granulated sugar
1/4 c. vegetable oil
2 eggs
1/2 tsp. vanilla
2 Tbls. Orange liquor
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/4 cup plus 2 Tbls. all purpose flour
1 1/2 cup finely shredded carrot
1/3 c. chopped pecans
1/3 c. golden raisins
1 Tbls. finely chopped candied ginger


Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Blend sugar, oil, eggs, vanilla, and liquor

Add baking powder, soda, salt, nutmeg and cinnamon

Add flour and blend until just combined.

Fold in carrots

Toss nuts, raisins and ginger with 1 Tbls. flour in a small bowl, fold into batter

Spoon evenly into lined muffin cups and bake 20 minutes

Cool completely and frost with cream cheese icing.
