This is a great, healthy muffin recipe ideal for lunchboxes, from the book Muffin Mania from Anne T Clark, an absolute health guru. With no dairy, refined sugar or white flour it is the perfect alternative to those fatty, cakey muffins available everywhere. It's so easy... and it works! Enjoy.
1 cup carrots, grated
3/4 cup water
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 1/2 cups wholemeal self raising flour
1/2 cup walnuts, chopped
1 cup raisins, chopped
1/2 cup honey
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp bicarb soda
microwave bowl or saucepan, medium bowl, sifter, mixing spoon, muffin tray
Put the carrots, raisins, water, cinnamon and nutmeg into a saucepan (or microwave proof bowl). Bring to the boil and simmer for 10 minutes or microwave on high for 2 mins.
Cool. Sift together the flour and bicarb soda. Add this, the walnuts and honey to the carrot mixture. Add extra water (enough to make an easy-to-spoon mixture but not runny) and mix well. Spoon in to well greased muffin pans.
Bake 25 mins at 200 deg c/400 deg f. Makes 12 muffins.
