  • 1 cup white whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 4 tbsp unsalted butter melted and cooled
  • 1/2 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1 large egg beaten
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup finely grated carrot
  • 1/2 cup apple sauce
  • 1/2 cup raisins optional


  • Preheat oven to 350F
  • Grease mini muffin tin (I use coconut oil)
  • Combine the flour, cinnamon, ground ginger, salt, and baking soda in a mixing bowl and whisk until thoroughly combined
  • In a second bowl, combine the butter, maple syrup, egg, and vanilla extract
  • Add the wet ingredients to the dry and stir until just combined
  • Add the carrots, applesauce and raisins and stir until just combined
  • Fill each cup in the pan to about 3/4 full and bake for about 15 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the centre of a muffin comes out clean.


You can sub in grated apple for the applesauce if that is what you have on hand
