carrot and walnut muffins


Try these delicious treats, our Carrot and Walnut Muffins, from our book Leaner, Fitter, Stronger.


Ingredients (makes 12):

  • 300g white spelt flour
  • 2 teaspoons of ground cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons of baking powder
  • Pinch table salt
  • 100g mild, odourless coconut oil
  • 150ml maple syrup, plus extra to drizzle (optional)
  • 2 large eggs (beaten)
  • 125g grated carrot (about 1 large carrot peeled)
  • 125g grated apple (about 1 apple, peeled)
  • 100g walnuts (roughly chopped)



  • Preheat the oven to 190C/Gas 5 and line a 12 hole muffin tin with paper cases (the parchment tulip ones are good for these)
  • Combine all the ingredients in a large mixing bowl.
  • Melt the coconut oil in a pan over gentle heat. Remove from the heat and mix in the maple syrup.
  • Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients and pour in the oil and syrup mixture, beaten eggs, grated carrot and apple, and two-thirds of the walnuts. Mix together with a large spoon until just incorporated – be careful not to overmix or the mixture may be tough.
  • Spoon the mixture evenly between the muffin cases and sprinkle the remaining walnuts over the tops. Bake in the oven for 22 minutes, until cooked through and golden on top.
