12 muffins


Choose your measure:

  • 1 3/4 cups King Arthur 100% White Whole Wheat Flour or Premium Whole Wheat Flour
  • 1/2 cup oat flour
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup golden flax meal
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 to 1/2 cup mini diced ginger
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 cups grated carrots


  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Lightly grease (or line with papers, and grease the papers) a 12-cup muffin pan.
  2. In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients, including the ginger.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk together the eggs, buttermilk, and oil, and stir into the dry ingredients. Fold in the carrots.
  4. Spoon the batter into the muffin cups, filling them almost full. Allow the muffins to rest for 10 minutes before baking.
  5. Bake the muffins for 20 to 23 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center of one comes out clean.
  6. Remove the muffins from the oven, and cool in the pan for 5 minutes before transferring to a rack to cool completely.
  7. Store, covered, at room temperature for 3 days, or freeze for up to a month.
