Here's a way to get some fruit, vegetables, fibre and other random goodness into you and still have a sweet treat:

Ingredients (makes about 9 or 10)
6oz carrots
1 eating apple
1 egg
4tbsps oil*
2tsp baking powder
4oz wholemeal flour
1tsp cinnamon
1-2oz sugar
Dried fruit (optional) (Cranberries, sultanas or chopped dates would probably work quite well)

Cook and mash the carrots and grate the apple. Put it all in a bowl.
Beat the egg and mix it and the oil into the carrot and apple mixture. If you want to use any dried fruit, add it now.
Mix together the dry ingredients and gradually add them to the wet mixture- you should get a sort of thick batter texture.
Put 9 or 10 cake cases into muffin tins and spoon the mixture into them. Bake the muffins at gas mark 6 for 15-20 minutes.

*You could use pretty much any oil for this, though sunflower, corn, groundnut or vegetable oil are best because you can still taste the other ingredients. Olive probably wouldn't work- it has too strong a flavour.

Enjoy! Grin

Hmmm, I'm not use to seeing Carrot and Apple Muffins that aren't vegetarian Smiley

I guess bacon would be good in them!

Sounds yummy. But I'm a yank..... so I have no clue what gas mark 6 is in terms of degrees Farhenhieght. (Pish, I can't even spell it.) Undecided
I'd love to make these..... If you gave me the temp in terms of Celsius I could convert it to work on my American oven...
