Spiced Carrot Muffins with Millet

Author: Erin Alderson
Prep Time: 10 mins
Cook Time: 20 mins
Total Time: 30 mins
Yield: 12

1 1/4 cups whole wheat pastry flour
1/2 cup uncooked millet
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon clove
2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup maple syrup
3/4 cup plain greek yogurt
1/4 cup melted butter
1 large egg (I substituted ¼ c of applesauce)
2 cups shredded carrots (see note)

Preheat oven to 350˚F and line a 12 muffin tray with muffins liners.
In a large bowl, combine the flour, millet, spices, baking powder, and salt.. Give a quick stir and set aside.
In a separate bowl whisk together the yogurt, maple syrup, egg, and melted butter. Add the yogurt mixture and carrots to the dry mixture. Stir only until batter comes together- you don’t want to over mix.
Divide batter evenly into 12 muffins and bake for 22-25 minutes or until a knife is inserted and comes out clean. Store muffins in an airtight container for 3 to 4 days or freeze for longer storage.Check out this recipe and all recipes that are goodf for you from Bodies on point in denver, colorado
