Super Sweet & Healthy Apple, Carrot & Raisin Muffins

Super Sweet & Healthy Apple, Carrot & Raisin Muffins

Drumroll please... there’s a new sweet muffin recipe for you on the menu this week - tried and tested on the little tummies, and sure to be a crowd pleaser for you too! I like to keep the snacks as varied and healthy as possible, with as many nutrients as I can manage, and these little delights are no exception. Packed with carrots, apples and raisins, as well as some nutty protein, they are great snacks for older children but also in mini version can be a good baby-led weaning food (just make sure you chop the nuts finely). They also work well as a breakfast on the go. Another bonus (like all my recipes) is that you can swap ingredients in and out - leave the raisins out or swap them them for chopped dates or apricots; add seeds instead of nuts or use a mix of different nuts. It’s up to you!

INGREDIENTS

Makes 12 Muffins

2 eggs

100g coconut oil, melted

225g spelt flour (or can be substituted for plain wholemeal flour)

1 carrot, grated

1 apple, grated

50g raisins or sultanas

50g chopped nuts (we used walnuts but cashews or pecans work well too)

1 tsp cinnamon

50g coconut sugar (optional or can be substituted for 50ml of maple syrup)

How to make the Super Sweet Healthy Muffins

Pre heat the oven to 180C fan

Simply mix all the ingredients together either by hand or in a mixer, divide into a greased muffin tins

Bake for 15-20 minutes until golden brown and a skewer comes out clean from the middle of a muffin.

Remove from the oven and leave to cool.

These can be kept in an airtight container for a couple of days or they freeze well, ready for popping into lunch boxes or after school snack bags.

I hope you enjoy making them. Grating apples and carrots is a lovely little toddler activity if you have little ones at home, so why not get them helping you? Let me know if you make them - find me over on instagram or Facebook! See you there.
