Ingredients

Dry Ingredients

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • ¾ cup whole wheat flour
  • ½ cup rolled oats
  • 1 ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon ginger
  • ¼ teaspoon nutmeg

Wet Ingredients

  • 2 flax eggs
  • 1 rounded cup shredded carrots
  • 1 large very ripe banana
  • ½ cup non-dairy milk
  • cup apple sauce
  • cup maple syrup
  • ¼ cup coconut oil melted

Mix-ins

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Line a muffin pan with paper baking cups. Spray the inside of the cups with cooking oil.
  • In a medium bowl combine all the dry ingredients and set aside.
  • In a food processor with the shredder blade, shred 2-3 carrots. Alternatively, you can shred by hand until you have 1 rounded cup. Combine carrots with the rest of the wet ingredients. Mix the dry ingredients into the wet. Fold in walnuts.
  • Scoop batter into prepared baking cups, filling each on to the top. Top with more walnuts if desired.
  • Bake for 20 minutes, until a knife inserted in the middle comes out clean. Let cool on a cooling rack for 10 minutes before serving.
  • Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 5 days or in the freezer for 1 month.
