  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup quick-cooking oats

  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 2 (6-ounce) containers Blue Hill Yogurt – Carrot
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups coarsely grated carrots (from about 1/2 pound)

Cooking Directions

  1. Special equipment: 2 muffin pans, each with 12 (1/2 cup) muffin cups; 18 cupcake liners
  2. Preheat oven to 350˚F with racks in middle and lower third.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, oats, baking soda, cinnamon and salt.
  4. In a second bowl, whisk together yogurt, eggs, honey, oil and vanilla. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients, then stir to combine well. Gently but thoroughly fold in carrots and raisins.
