Author Notes: These muffins are a great option for those who need a breakfast on the go, or for a slow paced morning. The Spelt flour in this recipe adds a nice earthiness to their flavor, while the addition of greek yogurt adds a pleasant tang. Freshly grated carrots, diced green apples, and fresh ginger, are folded into the batter, creating another layer of flavor. What is great about these muffins is that you can play around with the ingredients, add some nuts for crunch, or some fresh berries perhaps. The-Broken-Bread
