This week I took part in a Muffin exchange with a group of moms from momstown Brampton. This baking exchange has a it of a twist we had to make a healthy muffin recipe – No white flour, no refined sugars, no butter or bad oils, no dairy, and if you are adding chocolate it had to be dark chocolate! Phew a lot of guidelines to follow but I was up for the challenge of finding a healthy muffin recipe that was still delicious! Here is the recipe that I made:
3 Eggs – at room temperature
1/2 cup coconut oil, liquidifed
2 1/2 cups Whole Wheat Flour
1/2 tsp Baking Soda
1/2 tsp Baking powder
1/2 tsp Salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup Apple Juice
1 cup Mashed Banana
3/4 cup Grated Carrots, I used my food processor
1/2 cup Raisins
2 – Add flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt and cinnamon. Mix until well blended.
3 – Spoon into greased muffin tins and bake at 350oF for 25 minutes or until golden brown
Makes approximately 18 muffins
These muffins are moist and taste great. They also freeze very well, so make a double batch so that you will have a healthy snack on hand!
