  Salt 1⁄4 Teaspoon

Preheat oven to 400°.
Grease muffin tins or line with paper baking cups.
Thoroughly mix flours, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt in a large bowl.
Put orange peel, orange juice, milk, oil, honey, and egg whites in a medium size bowl.
Beat with a fork or whisk until egg whites are broken up (the mixture will have a curdled look).
Stir in the carrots.
Pour over dry ingredients and fold in with a rubber spatula just until dry ingredients are moistened.
Scoop batter into prepared muffin cups.
Bake 20-25 minutes, or until lightly browned.
Place pan on a wire rack to cool for a few minutes before removing muffins.
