Who says baked goods have to be unhealthy? These morning glory muffins pack a punch with carrots, apples, raisins and nuts. Drizzle some tahini-maple syrup on top for some decadence .

1 c whole wheat flour
1/2 c buckwheat flour
1/2 c rolled oats
2 t baking soda
1/2 c brown sugar
2 t cinnamon
1/2 t salt

Preparation:

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 375°. Lightly grease a 12-cup muffin tin or line with cupcake papers.

Step 2

Put the raisins in a small bowl and cover them with hot water; set aside to soak while you assemble the rest of the recipe.

Step 3

Whisk together the flours, oats, sugar, baking soda, spices and salt in a large mixing bowl. Stir in the carrots, apple, coconut and almonds.

Step 4

In a separate bowl, beat together the eggs, coconut oil, yogurt and vanilla. Add to the flour mixture, and stir until evenly moistened. Drain the raisins, chop, and stir them in.

Step 5

Scoop the batter evenly into the prepared muffin tin or cupcake papers. Bake the muffins until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 25 to 28 minutes.

Step 6

Remove from the oven and allow the muffins to cool in the pan for 5 minutes, then remove and finish cooling on a rack.

Additional notes: 

*If you want to add the tahina-maple drizzle (which you totally should), just whisk together these two ingredients in a small bowl and drizzle over the muffins after they’ve cooled for five minutes.
