Ingredients
  

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup whole wheat flour
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ¼ tsp sea salt
  • ¾ tsp cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp ground nutmeg
  • ½ tsp ground ginger
  • 2 eggs, room temperature
  • ¾ cup Greek yogurt
  • ¼ cup + 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • ¼ cup melted coconut oil, olive oil or vegetable oil
  • 2 cups grated carrots
  • ½ cup chocolate chips

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • Line a muffin tin (or two) with muffin liners.
  • Sift the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger into a large bowl.
  • In a medium sized bowl, whisk together the eggs, yogurt, maple syrup, vanilla, coconut oil and grated carrots. ** If you use coconut oil, be sure that the eggs are room temperature, or they will cause the coconut oil to solidify due to dropping the temperature of the oil.
  • Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix just until combined.
  • Fold in the chocolate chips.
  • Scoop the batter into the prepared muffin tins.
  • Bake for 18-20 minutes.
  • Allow to cool before serving.
