Eggless Whole Wheat Carrot Muffins

I have been on the look out for some healthy moist and delicious carrot muffins and these little muffins fit the bill perfectly. These are soft and moist and healthy, that you can bake for your family and friends and enjoy a guilt free snack.
I made these for my family to snack on as we went on a long drive to another city and these fabulous muffins made the journey pleasant and enjoyable!



Eggless Carrot Muffins


I love my carrot bakes! There is a carrot cake recipe that I have already posted, Which is a big hit in my family and for a quick fix, I go to my instant microwave carrot cake which is equally good! Do try these out!

Ingredients
  • Wheat flour - 1 1/4 cup (I used aashirwaad)
  • Grated Carrot - 3/4 cup
  • Sugar - 3/4 cup (you can also replace with jaggery)
  • Yogurt - 1 cup
  • Oil - 1/4 cup+ 1 tbsp
  • Baking powder - 1 tsp
  • Baking soda - 1/2 tsp
  • Vanilla extract - 1/2 tsp
  • Salt - 1/4 tsp
  • Cinnamon powder - 1/2 tsp
  • Nutmeg powder - 1/4 tsp
  • Walnuts - 2 to 3 tbsp, chopped

Eggless Carrot Muffins

Method
Makes 9 muffins
Pre heat the oven to 180 degrees C. Line a muffin tray with muffin liners.
1. Add the oil and yogurt in a mixing bowl and whisk well until combined. 



2. Add the sugar and vanilla extract and whisk again.
3. Sift in the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon powder and nutmeg powder. Or pre sift and add.



4. Fold the dry ingredients gently into the wet ingredients.
5. Add the grated carrot and mix again.



6. Spoon into muffin moulds and add some chopped walnuts on top and bake for 18-20 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean.
7. Cool for 5 minutes in the pan and then remove to a cooling rack.


Eggless Carrot Muffins


Notes
1. Do not over mix the batter.
2. Instead of white sugar you can use brown sugar or even cane sugar (jaggery) to make it more healthy.
3. You can increase the amount of walnuts and add it to the batter.
4. I measured the sugar and then pulsed it to a powder to help dissolve easily.
5. You can reduce the sugar to 1/2 a cup too and add a handful of raisins.



Until next time,
