Servings 6 servings


  • muffin liners or cooking spray
  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 medium carrots peeled and grated
  • 1 medium apple grated
  • 1/2 cup raisins or dried cranberries
  • 1/2 cup walnuts or any nut of your choice, chopped
  • 1/2 cup coconut flakes optional
  • 1/4 cup flaxseed optional
  • 2 egg sub flax eggs if needed
  • 1/2 cup butter melted
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract


  • Vegans only: If using a flax/chia egg: add 2 TBSP flaxseed or chia seed to a bowl with 6 TBSP water. stir and let it sit for 15 minutes until it has a goopy consistency (like an egg!)
  • Preheat the oven to 350 F. Prepare a muffin tin with liners or cooking spray.
  • Mix the flour, white sugar, brown sugar, salt, cinnamon and baking soda in a large bowl.
  • Mix in the grated carrot, apple, raisins, walnuts, coconut and flaxseed.
  • Add the butter and eggs/flax eggs to the bowl and mix well until the wet and dry ingredients are fully combined. The batter will be on the thicker side.
  • Use a 1/4 measuring cup to add the batter to the muffin tin. You might have a little extra batter leftover for more muffins (or a mug cake, which is what I did!). Bake for 20-25 minutes. That's it!


If you need to make these vegan, use flax or chia seed eggs. You need 2 flax/chia "eggs" for this recipe.
  • Combine 2 TBSP ground flaxseed meal or chia seeds with 6 TBSP water.
  • Let the mixture sit for 15 minutes at room temp or in the fridge.
  • The final result will be goopy, like an egg.
