These muffins aren't overly sweet. You can use slivered almonds instead of walnuts or even swap them for sultanas if you like. 

The nutritionals below are for the mini muffins. If you make 6 regular sized muffins instead, just double the nutritionals per serve.

Ingredients

  • 1 (60g) small carrot, grated
  • 1 tbsp. chopped walnuts
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tbsp. brown sugar
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 cup SR flour
  • ½ cup milk
  • 2 (40g) tbsp. butter
  • 2 tbsp. rolled oats
  • 4 tbsp. Greek yoghurt

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 180C.
  2. In a mixing bowl sift your flour and cinnamon together and mix in the brown sugar and oats.
  3. In a cup place your egg and milk and whisk with a fork. Melt your butter in microwave for 30 seconds. Place your egg mixture with flour and stir with a spoon then add the butter.
  4. Now combine the grated carrot, walnuts, and yoghurt and stir until all incorporated. It should be a thick batter but if too thick add a little more yoghurt.
  5. Divide mixture evenly into your patty pans or muffin tin. If you are making mini muffins then bake for 12 minutes and normal sized muffins 20-25 minutes. Half way through baking an option is to sprinkle some oats on top of muffins. Check with a skewer, take out and let cook on a wire rack.
