Carrot and walnut muffins

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

extra water




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.
