  • 2 cups (500 ml) unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups (375 ml) brown sugar
  • 1 cup (250 ml) quick oats
  • 1/2 cup (125 ml) raisins
  • 2 tsp (10 ml) baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp (2.5 ml) ground ginger
  • 1/4 tsp (1 ml) ground cinnamon
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1/2 cup (125 ml) vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup (125 ml) carrot juice
  • 2 eggs

  • 1 1/2 cups (375 ml) grated carrots

Preparation

  1. With the rack in the middle position, preheat the oven to 180 °C (350 °F). Line 12 muffin cups with paper liners or butter the cavities.
  2. In a large bowl, combine all the dry ingredients. Add the grated carrots.
  3. In another bowl, combine the oil, carrot juice, eggs and vanilla with a whisk. Add to the dry ingredients and stir gently with a spatula until the mixture is barely moist.
  4. Divide the batter among the muffin cups. Bake for about 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the centre of a muffin comes out clean. Allow to cool slightly. Unmould and cool on rack.
