Apple-Carrot Muffins

i have had this recipe saved on my computer for ages but have never made it.
well, because it calls for milk powder and i never had milk powder in my pantry in canada. 
but here in uganda? we always have it. sometimes we have the real stuff, but it's not like canadian milk and it goes bad a lot faster. so i almost always have a tin of powdered milk on hand.
i made these yesterday and i will definitely double the recipe next time. these went like hotcakes! muffins. they are delish.
bon appetit!

you need
1 cup of whole wheat or all purpose flour
1/4 cup sugar
2 tbsp dry milk
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ginger
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 tbsp honey
2 tbsp maple syrup
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 large apple, peeled and grated
1/2 cup finely grated carrot

preheat your oven to 350F degrees. combine flour, sugar, dry milk, baking powder, cinnamon, salt and ginger in a mixing bowl. in a separate bowl combine the oil, honey, maple syrup, eggs and vanilla. beat lightly with a whisk until blended. add the grated apple and carrot to the liquid mixture and stir well. fold in the dry ingredients until just combined but don't over mix or the muffins will become heavy.
line a muffin tin with paper liners {or grease them up with butter like i did} and fill muffin cups until 2/3 full. bake for 20-25 minutes. 

these are delicious. make them today and surprise someone with them.

these were enjoyed with the best cup of instant coffee i have ever tasted. so.stinkin.good.
