Ingredients

1/2 c
all purpose flour
1/2 c
whole wheat flour
1 tsp
baking powder
1/4 tsp
baking soda
1/2 tsp
salt
1 tsp
cinnamon
1/3 c
firmly packed brown sugar
1
large egg
3/4 c
plain fat free yogurt (greek is best)
2 Tbsp
unsalted butter (melted)
2 Tbsp
milk
2 Tbsp
applesauce
3/4 c
peeled, chopped apple (red or green)
3/4 c
grated carrot
1/4 c
raisins
2 Tbsp
cinnamon and sugar, equal amounts

Step-By-Step

1Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Mix dry ingredients together
2Beat Egg and add yogurt, milk, melted butter, applesauce.
3Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and mix with wooden spoon. Don't overmix or they will become tough. Mix just enough to blend ingredients, then fold in Apples, Carrots, Raisins and Pecans. If the ingredients seems a little dry you can add more applesauce or milk to get it to the right consisntency. However, the apples and carrots have a lot of moisture so a little dry batter will be o.k. Sprinkle with cinnamon & Sugar before baking.
4I used the large 6 muffin tin. Fill to about 3/4 full.

Bake for 15 to 18 minutes. Bake until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
