Katherine's Carrot Muffin Tops

Katherine made this recipe up to use some of our sweet winter carrots.

1 cup Bob's Red Mill 10 Grain Cereal, or similar hot cereal mix
1 1/4 cups plain raw yogurt
1 cup grated carrots
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 egg, beaten
3/4 cup raisins
1 tablespoon fresh or dried orange zest

1. Put cereal mix and yogurt in a large bowl and let sit at least 15 minutes.  Preheat oven to 350F.
2.  Mix in all the remaining ingredients except raisins.  Stir to mix well but don't beat the batter.
3.  Add the raisins and gently mix in.
4.  Drop by the heaped tablespoon onto a greased baking tray.  Bake 15 minutes, rotating half way through if your oven requires it.  Cool 10 minutes on tray, then remove to a rack or platter.
