The mornings are getting cooler and Autumn is upon us, which means my hardy apple tree is giving me an abundance of apples! I am enjoying sharing lots of apple recipes with you all to use them up.
This recipe includes both Apples and Carrots, which create a lovely sweet, moist muffin that is as good in lunch boxes as it is as a breakfast option!
Muffins can definitely be considered for breakfast, especially one so loaded with goodness!
The flavours in these muffins are what you would expect from something with carrot and apple, warmth of cinnamon and nutmeg with a lovely moist muffin with the use of vegetable oil.
I have finished this muffin with a little brown sugar to add a crunch, you can absolutely omit that step here.
The ingredients are pantry basics, you can scroll down to find the full ingredient list and method below
Plain White Flour
The method is so easy and can be made using just one bowl. The coconut and walnuts are optional but if you like them they do add a lovely extra dimension of flavour and texture.
Initially combine all of the dry ingredients into a large bowl, then prepare the carrot and apple. I find two large carrots and two apples are perfect for this.
Both the apples and carrots are grated rather than diced, and this adds to the moisture as the pieces of apple and carrot are combined throughout.
Then you combine the wet ingredients into the dry and fold through the apples and carrot.
You will get between 12-15 muffins from this recipe depending on the size of your muffin tray. I don’t tend to use cupcake cases for this recipe but you are more than welcome to if you prefer.
These are absolutely delicious served warm or cold, and they freeze beautifully so are perfect for lunch boxes as they will be thawed by lunch time.

I made these muffins last night (Texas muffins, made 11) and took them to work and they were delicious and moist. Would be making them again.
Such an easy recipe and delicious!
