(Makes approx.10 large muffins)Recipe of the week: Carrot & Walnut & L.S.A Muffins

Ingredients

2 lge eggs

½ cup honey

¼ tsp. vanilla extract concentrate

½ cup olive oil

1 cup G.F plain flour

¼ cup L.S.A mix*

1 tsp. bi-carbonate of soda

½ tsp. mixed spice

¼ tsp. himalayan salt

1 ½ cups finely grated carrots

½ cup chopped walnuts*

Method

Pre-heat the oven to 180º c. Grease or line your muffin tins and set them aside.

Place the eggs, honey, vanilla extract, and oil in a medium sized mixing bowl and beat well with a wooden spoon. Add the flour, L.S.A mix, bi-carb soda, mixed spice and salt, folding gently until just combined. Lastly fold through the finely grated carrots and chopped walnuts. Spoon the mixture into the muffin tins and cook for approx. 30-35 minutes, or until they spring back up when pressed gently in the centre.

 

*L.S.A mix can be found in most supermarkets and health food stores. It’s a mix of ground linseeds, sesame and almonds. Adding this to these muffins, combined with the use of walnuts, and the eggs, makes these muffins perfect for calming your mind and helping your nervous system. No sugar used in these with the use of honey for the sweetener.
