Ultra Carroty Muffins

16 Nov

(I am stealing recipes from my antiquated myspace blog when I should be studying)
If you eat too many, you may turn orange. I dare you to turn orange.
Makes 24 regular size muffins
2 lbs carrots – divided
1/2 cup orange juice or apple juice
1 cup maple syrup
2/3 cup oil
1 inch of ginger, peeled, grated and use the juice (optional)
4 cups flour (all purpose or whole wheat)
4 tsp baking powder
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp cardomom
1/2 tsp allspice
1/4 tsp nutmeg
granulated sugar for sprinkling

Preheat oven to 350. Cut 1 lb carrots into 1″ chunks and steam until very tender. Grate the other 1 lb. carrots and set aside. When carrots are done steaming, mash them up in a large bowl with juice, syrup, and oil until smooth-ish. Stir in grated carrots and ginger until well mixed. Add dry ingredients. Divide equally into muffin tins (tins will be full). Sprinkle with granulated sugar. Bake for 25 minutes for small muffins.
