By MARTHA ROSE SHULMAN These spicy whole-grain muffins are just sweet enough, unlike most cloying carrot cakes. And these are packed with carrots. http://www.nytimes.com/2011/03/01/health/nutrition/01recipehealth.html?pagewanted=print

Recipe Ingredients for Muffins - Carrot

2 1/2 cups whole-wheat pastry flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon nutmeg, freshly grated
1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 eggs
1/3 cup turbinado sugar
1/3 cup canola oil
1 1/3 cups buttermilk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2/3 cup golden raisins, tossed with 1 teaspoon unbleached all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups grated carrots

Recipe Directions for Muffins - Carrot

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees with the rack in the upper third of the space. Oil or butter muffin tins.

  2. Sift together the whole-wheat pastry flour, baking powder, baking soda, spices and salt.

  3. In a separate bowl, beat together the eggs, sugar, oil, buttermilk and vanilla. Using a whisk or a spatula, stir in the dry ingredients and mix until well combined. Do not beat; a few lumps are fine, but make sure there is no flour at the bottom of the bowl. Fold in the raisins or pecans and the carrots.

  4. Spoon into muffin cups, filling them to just below the top (about 4/5 full). Place in the oven, and bake 25 minutes until lightly browned and well risen.
