Pumpkin Carrot Muffins - Recipe

I found this recipe on and it's absolutely wonderful! I make it all the time. I'd like to find a way to lower the carbs a bit, though, or at least make it better carbs, and increase the protein.

1/2 cup pumpkin
1/3 cup brown sugar
2 tbsp oil
1 egg, beaten
1/2 cup grated carrots
3/4 cup whole wheat flour
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder

Beat together pumpkin, brown sugar, oil and egg.
Add in carrots.
In a separate bowl, blend together flour, salt, soda, baking powder and cinnamon.
Add to the pumpkin mixture.
Fill muffin tins about 2/3 full.
Bake at 375 degrees for 10-14 minutes. Makes 6 muffins.
