Whole wheat carrot muffins recipe


Whole wheat carrot muffins recipe with step by step photos - As the name suggests, this is a muffins prepared with whole wheat flour and carrots. This is a breakfast, evening snack and can be packed in the snack box. This is a kids friendly snack which can be prepared very easily and quickly. I use wheat flour everyday to make phulka and chapathi. Carrot is also used often in our house. It is a nutritious root vegetable and raw carrot is used in the form of salad all over the world. I have tried this muffin couple of times, it was truly delicious and is a healthy, guilt free snack. Varieties of muffins are available in cake shops and bakeries, but carrot muffins are not available. Therefore usually it has to be baked at home. The method of preparation is similar to the walnut banana muffins, but In this muffins I have used oil and curd instead of butter and banana. For the sweet taste, I have added very less quantity of sugar powder, however you can increase the quantity of both sugar and oil. Butter can also be used along with oil to get more tastier muffins. I bake carrot muffins during the season of Delhi carrots which has a vibrant orange colour with a pleasant sweet taste.
