These delicious muffins from the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge are high in protein-rich Greek yogurt and are loaded with extra nutrients from raw carrots and pecans which will help cleanse the liver, stimulate the metabolism and fight fatigue.
Muffins are a great snack for busy moms. Throw one in your bag as you head out the door to enjoy for morning tea.
Preheat oven to 420F and line 12 holes of a muffin tray with paper cases or lightly grease with cooking oil spray.
In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and ground spices. Mix together well.
Add the carrots, pecans, coconut oil, maple syrup, eggs, yogurt and vanilla. Mix until well combined but don’t over mix as otherwise the muffins will be tough. Divide the batter evenly between the prepared muffin tray and bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes until golden on top.
One muffin is one serving.
Muffins can be kept for 3 days in the fridge or 3 months in the freezer.
