Boo! Happy Halloweenie! I have yet another pumpkin treat for you. Pretty sure that’s all I’ve baked in October. Pumpkin treats on pumpkin treats. All pumpkin everything, if you will. I am (only a little bit) sorry about the complete lack of diversity in my cooking lately…I just love pumpkin so much and ’tis the season, no? These muffins are ~healthy~ and perfect for a lil snack. Or for breakfast with a cup of coffee! They’re not-so-sweet, hearty muffins, so if you (like me) are not a huge fan of overly sweet things, these are for you! That being said, they’re still very yummy. Perfectly soft and moist. A people-are-somewhat-surprised-when-you-say-they’re-healthy kind of muffin. And I just love carrot cake so much, the fact that these are carrot-cake-inspired makes me happy. Make ’em like dis:

1 1/2 c. whole wheat flour
1/2 c. almond meal
1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
2 eggs
1 c. pumpkin puree
1 c. plain greek yogurt
1/2 c. brown sugar
1 c. shredded carrot (about two medium carrots)
1/3 c. raisins

Preheat your oven to 375° and grease your muffin pan or line it with liners. Set aside. Combine flour, almond meal, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt in a bowl, whisking them together to make sure there are no lumps. (Pay special attention to your almond meal! It loves to be clumpy!) In a separate bowl, mix together eggs, brown sugar, yogurt, and pumpkin puree until combined. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ones and fold together gently. Once completely combined, add the shredded carrot and raisins and divide evenly in your muffin tin. Bake for 22-25 minutes or until toothpick inserted into the center of one comes out clean.
