Healthy and sweet carrot oat and walnut muffins!

I love muffins as a sweet treat as they are easy to make, anything goes and they bake up quick.

It’s like eating individually sized cakes and I am all about that!

Coming up with recipe ideas comes naturally to me, however, I often take to Instagram story polls to ask my audience for advice.

When give a choice between 4 flavors, carrot and oat got a good amount of votes and I was very excited!

Not only are these carrot oat and walnut muffins delicious, they are also incredibly nutritious!

Packed with oats, carrot and walnuts, this sweet treat is packed with fiber, omega-3 fatty acids, protein, vitamin-A and more!

Instead of buying oat flour, I like to buy old fashioned oat and use the food processor to make homemade oat flour.

Using this method also allows me to determine the texture of the oat flour.

For the carrots, I buy organic so that I can just wash and grate. Yes, I do not peel my carrots as most of the nutritional value of the carrot is right underneath the peel!

As a sweetener I am using coconut sugar and maple syrup. Using a mix of dry and liquid sweetener helps with the texture of the muffins and adds flavor.

This recipe is not overly sweet so if you have a sweet tooth, add a bit more coconut sugar. I’ve added amounts below.

As this recipe is egg free and vegan, I am using vegan butter in the images.

The question is to butter or not to butter your muffin?

 

Make these muffins, snap a pic and send it to me on Instagram!

Add the muffin batter into the lined muffin pan. This will yield 6-8 muffins.

Bake the muffins in your preheated oven for 25-28 minutes.

Once the timer goes off, insert a toothpick into the center of one of the muffins to check if the muffins are fully baked.

If the toothpick comes out dry, the muffins are done.
