  • Portion size 6 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup plain yogurt
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 cup grated carrots
  • 1/2 cup grated peeled apple
  • 1/4 cup dried cranberry
  • 1/4 cup raisin
  • 1/4 cup each pepitas
  • 1/4 cup each shredded coconut

Method

Grease or line 6 muffin cups with paper liners; set aside.

In large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, cinnamon, baking soda and salt. In separate bowl, whisk together egg, sugar, yogurt and oil until smooth; pour over dry ingredients. Sprinkle with carrots, apple, cranberries, pepitas and coconut; mix just until dry ingredients are moistened to form very thick batter.

Spoon into prepared muffin cups; bake in 350°F (180°C) toaster oven until tops are firm to the touch, about 25 minutes. Let cool in pan on rack for 5 minutes. Transfer to rack; let cool completely. (Make-ahead: Store in airtight container for up to 2 days or wrap individually in plastic wrap and freeze in airtight container for up to 1 month.)
