Packed with flavorful and wholesome ingredients, these banana carrot raisin muffins make a good snack or breakfast, as they are literally a balanced meal. They are wonderful topped with a spread of homemade almond butter. Loads of nutritious goodness!

 

Ingredients:

Dry

2 1/2 cups spelt flour

2 1/2 cups finely chopped/grated carrot

3/4 cup walnuts or pecans roughly chopped

3/4 old fashion oats (or quinoa flakes)

3/4 cup raisins

1 1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp unrefined sea salt

1 ½ tsp cinnamon powder

1 ½ tsp nutmeg

 

Wet 

3 large ripe bananas mashed into a paste

1/2 cup virgin coconut oil (or extra virgin olive oil)

1 1/4 cup natural almond or coconut milk

2 free-range organic eggs (or 2 tablespoons ground flax or chia + 4 tablespoons water)

1/4 cup maple syrup or honey (optional for baby/toddlers)

1 1/2 teaspoon apple cider vinegar (optional)

 

Directions:

Mix all the dry ingredients in a large bowl. In a separate medium bowl combine all the wet ingredients and mix well. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix until combined. If it looks too dry add a little more banana paste or coconut oil. Don’t be tempted to make it too “runny”. Scoop the batter into the greased muffin tray. Bake at 350F for 15-20 minutes.
