Vegan Spiced Carrot-Raisin Muffins

Inspired by fall, this delicious muffin recipe using cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger to add spice. Adding shredded carrots to your muffins not only increases your vegetable intake for the day, but is a great source of beta-carotene. Beta-carotene can be converted into vitamin A by the body, which is a powerful antioxidant good for eye health, skin health, and reducing risk of certain cancers. Pair these muffins with a protein like Greek yogurt, a hard-boiled egg, or fortified, unsweetened soy milk to keep you feeling full for longer!
