Dry ingredients:

  • 1 3/4 cups white whole wheat flour or a mixture of whole wheat and unbleached flours
  • 1/4 cup natural sugar
  • 1 tablespoon ground flax seed
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 3/4 teaspoon ginger
  • 1/8 teaspoon cloves
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Wet ingredients:

  • 1/3 cup agave nectar or maple syrup
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened apple sauce
  • 1/2 cup soy yogurt see note
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla


  • 1 1/2 cup shredded carrots about 3
  • 1/4 cup raisins
  • Optional topping: Vanilla sugar


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray a muffin pan with non-stick spray or use muffin liners. (I used silicone muffin pans.)
  • Mix together all dry ingredients in a large bowl. In a small bowl, combine the liquid ingredients. Add the liquid to the dry and mix just long enough to combine. Add the carrots and raisins and stir to combine.
  • Spoon the batter into the muffin cups–it will be very thick. Sprinkle with vanilla sugar, if desired. Bake for 15-20 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean.


People sensitive to soy may try substituting rice milk or other non-dairy milk.
