- 1 carrot grated
- 1 medium green apple, grated
- 1 2 cm piece ginger, grated
- 1½ cups wholemeal spelt flour
- 1 tsp low-allergy baking powder
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- ½ cup pepitas
- 2 tbsp tea oil
- ¼ cup maple syrup
- 2 eggs
- ½ cup buttermilk
Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius.
Grease a 12-hole muffin tray.
Mix the flour, baking powder, cinnamon and pepitas in a bowl. Stir through the carrot, apple and ginger. Mix the tea oil, maple syrup, eggs and buttermilk together and using a knife combine it quickly into the dry mix. Bake for 20 - 25 minutes.
Note: Gluten free muffins are often made from rice flour and make a nice treat for people who can't tolerate wheat. Like rice, rice flour does have a high GI and should not be eaten in excess if you are battling with weight issues.
