Directions

Preheat oven to 350F. Spray a 12-cup muffin tin with cooking spray or line with baking cups.

In large bowl, stir the peanut butter, shredded carrot, brown sugar, and Smart Balance Light until combined. Stir in the yogurt and egg white.

Add the flour, flaxseed meal, baking powder, and baking soda. Batter will be thicker than traditional batter and lumpy!

Divide batter among the muffin cups and drop a teaspoonful of preserves on top of each muffin.

Bake until the tops of the muffins are golden brown and a toothpick comes out clean when inserted into the center, approximately 20-25 minutes.

Cool on a wire rack and enjoy!
