Ingredients

  • Ingredients:
  • Solid/ Powder mixture
  • 1 cup of whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup of all purpose flour
  • 1 cup of rolled oats
  • 1/4 cup of milled flax seeds
  • 1 cup of dried fruits (I used an exotic fruit mix)
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda or bi-carbonate of soda
  • 1 tsp spoon of cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp of salt (or just a sprinkle)
  • Liquid/ Juicy mixture
  • 1 beaten egg
  • 1 cup of low fat or skimmed milk
  • Zest of one lemon
  • Half a vanilla stick (use all the seeds you get)
  • 4 tbsp honey
  • 250 g of fresh pumpkin piece - Orange colour (boiled and drained from excess water. Once boiled and drained the final size should be about 1 1/2 the size of a tennis ball.
  • 1medium-to-large carrot (shredded)
  • Decoration
  • Any kind of nuts (I used crushed walnuts and whole flax seeds)

Method

    1. Add your solid mixture to your liquid mixture in 2 steps and stir to combine. Towards the end, fold in your dried fruits. The result mixture will not be too watery or too thick.
    2. Pour in your mixture in a greased 12 pieces muffin pan. Then decorate the top of your muffins with your choice of nuts.
    3. Put it in your pre-heated oven (180 - 200C) and bake for 25 min.
    4. The result will be a not-too-sweet balanced and healthy piece of muffin (180 calories) good for breakfasts and snacks.
