Cream Cheese Carrot Muffins with Pumpkin Spice Mix
Wow these muffins are so delicious and then they are actually healthy, each muffins contains around 115 calories, so they are also low calorie, a total win win 🙂 I still have a lot of carrots in my garden, so I had to find a way to get rid of some of them, so of course I baked lots and lots of muffins, I gave them a little twist of orange and it only made them even better.

25 gram walnuts (chopped)
100 gram Greek yoghurt 2%
Juice and grated peel from one orange
