1 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp fine sea salt
3 5.3-oz containers Dannon Light & Fit Salted Caramel Greek Nonfat Yogurt, divided
3 extra-large eggs
1/2 cup canola oil
1 cup finely grated carrots
3 tbsp freshly grated orange zest, divided

2. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.

4. Add carrots, sprinkle in 1 1/2 tablespoons orange zest, and gently fold to combine.

5. Spoon batter into muffin pan.

6. Bake on the middle rack of the oven until a toothpick inserted in the center of a muffin comes out with just a few crumbs attached, about 20 minutes. Let muffins cool in the pan, 5 minutes.

7. Run a small knife around the edge of each cup to loosen muffins. Remove from the pan and let cool completely, at least 10 minutes.

8. Using a serrated knife, carefully cut the top off of each muffin. Spread about 1 tablespoon of yogurt on each muffin bottom, then reassemble with muffin tops.
