Instead of sugar Priya suggests using puree apple about 75g. I think when I make them again I will add a little more. As they really are not very sweet. Maybe adding slightly more cinnamon too.
First I prepared the carrots and puree apple, and pre heated the fan oven to 160c.
I decided to use Doves farm self raising flour rather than the combination of oat and rice flour.
I mixed together the flour, cinnamon and baking powder. I also added a tsp of isabel’s baking fix.
Then eggs, milk and Lucybeecoconut coconut oil. which I used instead of rapeseed oil. I think they would work well using a dairy free milk too.
Followed by the grated carrots and apple sauce and finally the sultanas.
The mixture was quite thick so next time I might add an extra egg.
I spooned the carrot muffin mixture into muffin cases.
After about 16mins they were ready to take out of the oven.
I had one warm with a cup of tea.
They are certainly not sweet when made without sugar, no surprise there. But if like me you are trying to restrict your sugar intake then I think as my palate changes these will taste sweeter. You can make them with sugar or possible maple syrup, honey or agave. But wanted to try out a recipe only using cinnamon and apple puree.
I will definitely make these Carrot muffins again, perhaps just tweaking slightly.
Great recipe @dietitianUk
Happy baking : )
