Frosted Rainbow Carrot Muffins

Recipe inspired by @tasty

Muffins
 3 eggs
 ½ cup Greek yogurt
 ½ cup pure maple syrup
 ¼ cup milk
 1 tsp vanilla extract
 3 rainbow carrots, outside peeled, and then shredded
 1 ½ cups whole wheat pastry flour
 ½ cup raisins
 1 ¾ tsp baking powder
 1 tsp ground cinnamon
Cream Cheese Frosting
 8 oz light cream cheese
 ¼ cup pure maple syrup
 1 tsp vanilla extract
1

Preheat oven to 350F. In a large bowl, whisk the eggs until fluffy. Add in the Greek yogurt and whisk again.

2

Pour in the maple syrup, milk, and vanilla extract. Mix well.

3

Add in the shredded carrots, pastry flour, raisins, baking powder, and cinnamon. Mix until just combined (over-mixing will result in a drier, denser muffin which we don't want).

4

Pour the batter into a silicone 12- muffin tray (if not silicone, then be sure to grease the muffin tin).

5

Bake for 18-20 minutes. Insert a toothpick to make sure it comes out dry.

6

Wait for the muffins to cool before adding frosting. To make the frosting, mix together the cream cheese, maple syrup, and vanilla extract. Spoon on top of the cooled muffins and enjoy!
