Perky Ginger & Carrot Muffins!



This is a wake you up with a smile muffin! Pretty natural orange color, great taste from freshly grated carrots & fresh grated ginger! A food processor make this EASY! Make some muffins & some smiles!

2 & 1/2 Cups Flour
1 & 1/4 Cup Sugar
1 TBS Baking Powder
1 TSP. Salt
2 Beaten Eggs
1/4 Vegetable Oil
1 Cup Plain Yogurt
2 TSP Vanilla
1 TBS Grated Fresh Ginger OR 2 TSP Powdered Ginger
1 & 1/2 Cups Grated Carrot this took 3/4 of a bag of baby carrots!
Sanding Sugar to sprinkle on top.
1 Cup Nuts,  or Raisins, or  Coconut, or Crushed Pineapple OPTIONAL! If you add the crushed pineapple DRAIN WELL & add another 1/4 flour to the recipe! I kept mine Ginger & Carrots this time but next time I might add one of these options!

Stir all the dry together, add all of the wet & stir well. Now stir in the carrots & ginger that you grated ahead of time ( makes it easier). Spoon into a 12 well muffin tin that you sprayed with cooking spray. Now sprinkle with a liberal amount of sanding sugar. Bake at 400 degrees for about 20 minutes or until muffin batter tests dry not wet! SO TASTY & makes you think of SPRING! These would be GREAT for anytime of day & would make Mothers Day or Easter EXTRA special!
