Carrot & Walnut Muffins

Ingredients:
2 eggs
½ cup vegetable oil
½ cup honey
1 ½ cup finely chopped carrot
¾ cup toasted and finely chopped walnuts
1 ½ cups whole wheat white flour
2 ¼ tsp baking powder
¼ tsp salt
1 ½ tsp cinnamon
½ tsp nutmeg

Directions:
1. whisk eggs, oil and honey until smooth (the original recipe calls for sugar, but I subbed it out for honey – also I used safflower oil instead of vegetable oil)
2. stir in chopped carrots and ½ cup walnuts to egg mixture
3. mix dry ingredients and then add to wet ingredients, mix well – this will be a slightly stiff dough
4. spoon mixture into muffin cups (either oiled well or with paper cups inserted), top each muffin with a pinch of remaining nuts
5. bake for ~25 mins at 400 degrees F – then serve with warm jam or butter or just eat ‘em
