CARROT MUFFINS WITH PEANUT BUTTER FROSTING: INGREDIENTS
For 24 muffins:
- 2 cups roughly chopped raw walnuts, pecans, or both
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 cup whole wheat flour
- 4 tsp baking powder
- ½ tsp baking soda
- 3 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1 ½ tsp ground ginger
- 2 tsp kosher salt
- 4 large eggs
- 2 cups unsweetened applesauce
- 1 ½ cups brown sugar
- 1 cup vegetable oil
- 2 tsp finely grated orange zest
- 3 cups peeled and grated carrots (about 2 large carrots)
- 1 cup golden raisins
- OPTIONAL: hemp seeds, chia seeds, flaxseeds, and/or sesame seeds for topping
For the peanut butter cream cheese frosting:
- 2 packages, softened (8 ounces) cream cheese
- 1 cup smooth peanut butter
- 3 cups powdered sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 tablespoons heavy cream
- 1 cup roasted peanuts, roughly chopped and coated in honey
- 2 standard 12-cup muffin/cupcake pan
- 24 muffin/cupcake liners or grease paper
- 1 large bowl
- 1 medium bowl
- Cooling rack
- A standing mixer if you have it, otherwise a whisk will do just fine
- Preheat the oven to 325° F.
- Line the cups of the muffin pan (you will need to do this twice for two batches).
Prepare the muffins:
- In a large bowl, combine the all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger, and salt. Mix it all up with a whisk.
- In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, applesauce, brown sugar, vegetable oil, and orange zest.
- Add the mixed ingredients from Step 2 to the dry ingredients in Step 1. To combine, use a rubber spatula to gently fold them into each other until they’re almost totally combined, but not all the way. Do not stir in circles.
- Grab your grated carrots, raisins, and nuts and gently fold them into the batter as well with the rubber spatula. Do this lightly just until they’re settled in the batter, and avoid over-mixing!
- Now pour your batter into the lined muffin cups. You can fill them up to just below the brim.
- If you’re using the seeds, sprinkle them over the tops now.
Bake the muffins:
- Place the muffin pan on the middle rack and bake for about 18-22 minutes.
- Now that you’ve got a few minutes to spare, grab your phone and play Year of the Rabbit. By the time your muffins are done, you may have already won one of the Hot Drop Jackpots! One has to drop every hour, after all.
- Around the 20-minute mark, the tops of the muffins should be puffed out and golden brown. When you stick a knife or toothpick in the middle, it should come out clean.
- When you take them out, put the muffin pan on a wire rack to cool for about 5 minutes.
- After 5 minutes, remove the muffins from the pan and place them directly on the rack to cool all the way.
- Now’s a good time to do the frosting.
Whip up the frosting:
- Cream together in your mixer, or with a whisk, the softened cream cheese and peanut butter. Make sure they’re soft enough to avoid lumps.
- Add the powdered sugar a little at a time to avoid making a mess.
- Add the remaining vanilla, heavy cream, and nuts until the blend is even, and the frosting is silky smooth.
- When the muffins are cooled, use a regular butter knife to slather on a layer of frosting for each muffin.
- Dig in. You earned it!
PRO TIP: These muffins store well in the freezer! Just ensure they’re in an airtight, moisture-free container.
