These Carrot Muffins are a low-sugar, whole-grain twist on a carrot cake. They are light and moist (no, that’s not an oxymoron) and filled with warm spices and almond and whole wheat flours. Bonus: they make a small batch of 6.
FLOUR. If you opt to measure by volume instead of weight, whisk the flour first to aerate it, then spoon into a measuring cup, and then level it off with the back of a knife.
CINNAMON + GINGER. If using Five Spice Chinese powder, substitute it 1:1 for the cinnamon and ginger.
BUTTERMILK. Combine 1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar with 1/2 cup milk and let the mixture sit until the milk looks curdle-like, about 3 minutes.
STORAGE. Store muffins tightly wrapped for up to 3 days at room temperature.
