|Apple, Banana and Carrot Muffins|
I thought muffins would make an easy breakfast or snack and searched the internet for recipes. Most of them contained sugar or honey or both. I wanted a recipe that would be sweetened by the ingredients, like carrots or apples and then I found Mother Down Under's recipe for sugar free apple, banana and carrot muffins. Just the thing I was looking for.
Only problem for me was that it was in cups and I needed grams and I didn't have any iron enriched baby porridge. So this is my adaptation of the recipe.
1 whole egg or 2 yolks
2 tablespoons whole milk
130g self raising flour
1 Oatibix crushed
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 apple grated
1 carrot grated
1 banana mashed
Mix flour, Oatibix and cinnamon in a bowl
Add grated carrot and apple and mix together.
Whisk egg with the oil
Mash banana and then add milk
Add egg mixture and banana mixture to the dry ingredients, stir and spoon into a muffin tin or tray. I used a silicone tray so it did not need lining. I filled each one about 3/4 full.
Bake at 200C/180C fan for about 35 to 40 minutes. They are cooked when a skewer comes out clean.
Cool on a wire rack. These freeze really well and can be defrosted in the microwave in seconds.
