To celebrate National Cake Week in (healthy) style, why not try these low-sugar 'Rise & Shine' muffins which contain grated vegetables for added moisture, sweetness and vitamins!
Recipe makes 12 muffins.
40g grated courgette
40g grated carrot
30ml sunflower oil
2 free-range egg s, beaten together
150g plain flour
30g soft brown sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1 tablespoon cinnamon
Pre-heat your oven to 200c, and fill your muffin tray with 12 cases
Stir the beaten eggs with the grated courgette and carrot, and add milk and sunflower oil.
In a separate bowl mix together the dry ingredients (flour, sugar and baking powder)
Combine both mixtures together and mix well until you have a batter
Divide the mixture between the 12 cases, and bake in the oven for 15 - 20 minutes or until baked (Test with a skewer – it should come out clean when they are ready!)
Remove your muffins from the tin, and set aside to cool
