Carrot oatmeal raisin muffins

I am not much a carrot person. This might seem funny for a vegetarian, but it’s true. Boiled carrots, roasted carrots, carrots in stirfries – I’ll eat them, but only because I know they’re good for me. I love most vegetables, so I’m not sure what it is about carrots that doesn’t work for me.

Raw carrots pulled fresh from the garden are a completely different matter. Those I love. Those I could eat all day. The rest of the time, though, I grate carrots and bake them into muffins and cakes. Carrot cake, carrot loaf, carrot muffins – carrot-filled baked goods are among my favourite treats.

Carrot oatmeal muffins
Makes 12 muffins

1-1/2 cups flour
1 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
2 teaspoons each cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup water
1 egg
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1-1/2 cups grated carrot
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup coconut
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1/4 cup candied ginger, chopped
1/4 cup flaxseed meal

Combine dry ingredients. Whisk together water, egg, vegetable oil and grated carrot and add to flour mixture. Gently fold in raisins, coconut, walnuts, ginger and flaxseed meal. Spoon into greased muffin tins and bake for 20 minutes in a 375F oven.
