Coconut and carrot muffins

15 Jan

If you look back at the recipes I have shared they are mostly muffins.  That is because they are such a quick easy thing to make and are a great snack which can be made pretty healthy for every day.  These ones are really yummy although (surprisingly) not over-poweringly coconuty.  Plus they are sugar-free and vegan.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup wholemeal flour
  • 1 ½ cup spelt flour
  • ½ cup unsweetened desiccated coconut
  •  ½ cup flax seed
  • sprinkle salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 4 carrots, grated
  • 1 cup oat milk
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 2 heaped tsp coconut oil
  • juice of ½ lemon

Method

  1. combine flax seed and oat milk and let sit.  This thickens and is the “egg replacer”.
  2. combine all dry ingredients and then add carrots
  3. melt coconut oil in microwave for a few seconds
  4. combine all wet ingredients
  5. mix wet ingredients into dry (mine was still a little dry so added another tablespoon of coconut milk)
  6. put into greased muffin tray
  7. bake at 200°C for about 25 minutes

Makes 16
