Moist and Yummy Carrot Muffins

Moist and Yummy Carrot Apple Muffins
 
1 cup oats
1 cup flour (spelt)
2 tsp baking soda
Cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and cloves few dashes of each. (I always use more cinnamon)
2 scoops vanilla whey protein (optional)
3/4 cup melted coconut oil (olive or grapeseed)
1/2 cup raw cane sugar
1/2 cup applesauce
1/4 cup Greek yogurt 
3 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups shredded carrots
1/2 cup coconut shredded
1/2 cup raisins (optional)
1/2 cup walnuts or hemp seeds 
 
Blend together and bake for 20 minutes at 350.
 
I cut the sugar back from 1/2 cup, used unsweetened coconut but the applesauce was sweetened.  If you don't have Greek yogurt just add more applesauce.  These are a high protein muffin, so should stay with you.  Enjoy!
