Carrot and Apple Oatmeal Muffins

I promised you guys I would come up with new ways to enjoy oats- ‘I am fidelity, I keep my word!’.

I still have about 6 ways I’m going to share before the end of the challenge. To my mind, each new one is tastier than the last (I said to MY mind ooo!).

Carrot and Apple Oatmeal Muffins

Carrot and Apple Oatmeal Muffins

This recipe is ideal for the challenge. It’s also lactation-friendly, kid-friendly, and pregnancy-friendly.

These “muffins” have the perfect amount of sweetness and crunch; it will go down well with a cup of hot chocolate. If that doesn’t get your day off to a good start, I don’t know what will.

You can make these ahead and freeze. You really don’t have any excuse not to eat breakfast. They thaw perfectly without heat.

* I apologise for the crappy pictures. Just trust me, they’re fantastic!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup of oats
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup of milk
  • 1 cup of almonds (crushed)
  • 1 cup of grated carrots
  • 1/2 cup of honey
  • 1 apple, cut into chunks
  • 1/2 cup of water

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. In a large bowl, mix oats, eggs, honey, and milk. Leave to one side for 10 minutes to allow the oats absorb the liquid.
  3. Add the water, carrots, almonds, and apple. Mix to combine. Pour into lined muffin/cupcake pans. (I used mini wrappers and got 15 muffins).
  4. Bake for 25 minutes. Serve.

Enjoy, and remember. It’s sooo good for you!

Hi, my name is Chidinma. I’ve been happily married for 4+ years (actually almost 6 years now), and my husband and I have been trying to have our own children for almost all the time we’ve been married, with no success…yet. We haven’t lost hope (far from it), and we believe it will happen very soon.

This looks fab. In order to cut down on expenses can I use groundnut which is readily available instead of the pricey store bought almonds.
I’ve been looking for breakfast foods that are easy to whip up and healthy. For now I’m stuck at egg quiche (without the milk or cheese) and adding veggies to them to up the health factor.
I’m so glad you posted this recipe. Thanks a bunch!!

    Hello dear. The problem with groundnuts is that they tend to become soft after mixing with the liquid. You won’t like them.

    You can try cashew nuts instead, or poppy or sesame seeds.

    More freezer friendly breakfast recipes on the way.

    They’re on their way. Lol.
    I’m actually posting a pancake recipe today, but I didn’t think to add the apple. You need to process the oats a little. It was delicious, and it tasted like regular pancakes.

    Hmm, grating the apples…I’m trying that! Thank you Amaka

I don’t what I did wrong but the recipe didn’t work for me. its quite runny almost like cooked oat. it doesn’t have a muffin like texture. did I do something wrong?

    Chidinma - November 1, 2015

    Ahhh, are you serious? I don’t know…did you leave the oats for some time? Did you grate the apple? If you did, that might be it. Let me know pls.

    I’m sorry it didn’t work out. Will make it again to see what might have happened.

      I cubed the apple. I’m guessing I didn’t leave the oats long enough to soak. the recipe was really wet after I mixed everything together so I added extra 1/2 cup of oats. that’s the only modification I made to the recipe.

      I don’t drink oats and the consistency just put me off. I’m so bummed. I had such high hoped 🙁

        The batter is wet immediately after mixing, but after the set aside time, it becomes much thicker. I think that’s the issue. I’m really sorry it didn’t turn out well for you, I’d be bummed too.

    Hi Ify, you can find it in any shop that sells cake things. It’s really easy to find. You bake in the oven.
