8 jumbo muffins


  • 1 ½ cups whole wheat flour

  • 1 scoop whey protein powder

  • 1 ½ teaspoons baking powder

  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger

  • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg

  • ½ teaspoon baking soda

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • 2 cups grated carrot

  • ½ cup raisins

  • ½ cup maple syrup

  • cup olive oil

  • 2 large eggs

  • 1 cup plain Greek yogurt

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 2 tablespoons raw sugar

  • 3 tablespoons pumpkin seeds


  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Line two 4-cup jumbo muffin tins with paper liners.

  2. Whisk flour, protein powder, baking powder, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, baking soda, and salt together in a large bowl. Gently stir in carrots and raisins.

  3. Whisk maple syrup and oil together in a medium bowl. Add eggs, yogurt, and vanilla and beat well. Pour the wet mixture into the dry and stir until just combined. It will be a bit lumpy.

  4. Pour the batter evenly into the muffin tins. Sprinkle raw sugar and pumpkin seeds over the tops.

  5. Bake muffins in the preheated oven until golden and a toothpick inserted into the middle of the largest muffin comes out clean, about 15 minutes. Cool the muffins on a cooling rack for at least 10 minutes before serving.

Cook's Note:

You can use vanilla-flavored Greek yogurt if you prefer. The raw sugar and pumpkin seeds are optional.
