Ingredients

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Lightly coat the muffin tin with cooking spray.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and salt.
  • In a large bowl, combine the applesauce, Greek yogurt, brown sugar, canola oil and egg. Stir together until the mixture is smooth.
  • Stir the dry ingredients into the applesauce mixture until combined. Stir in the carrot, raisins and chopped pecans.
  • Spoon the muffin batter into the prepared muffin cups.
  • Bake for 7 minutes. Place one pecan half on top of each muffin. Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center of the muffins comes out clean, an additional 7 to 9 minutes.
  • Remove muffins from the pan and allow to cool. Serve.
