Servings: 18 Muffins


  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup sour cream or plain yogurt
  • 1/3 cup light brown sugar packed
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • pinch of salt
  • 3/4 cup grated carrots about 1 large peeled and trimmed carrot
  • 3/4 cup finely diced apples Gala, Honeycrisp or similar
  • 1/2 cup golden raisins


  • Preheat oven to 350F. Line a muffin pan with paper liners or grease generously with nonstick cooking spray. (I prefer to grease the pan rather than use the papers, which they can tend to stick to).
  • In a large bowl, whisk together egg, sugars, vegetable oil, sour cream, vanilla and spices to combine.
  • Gently stir in flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt, just until combined. Do not overmix.
  • Gently fold in the carrots, apples and raisins.
  • Spoon batter evenly into muffin cups. An ice cream scoop works great for this.
  • Bake for 25-35 minutes or until the tops is golden and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean or with a few moist crumbs.
  • Allow muffins to cool in pan for about 15 minutes before turning out on a wire rack to cool completely. Store in an airtight container for up to one week, or in the freezer for us to 6 months.
