Ingredients

0 portion(s)

  • zest of half an orange
  • 100 grams carrots, chopped into chunks
  • 125 grams pitted dates
  • 220 grams natural yoghurt
  • 75 grams Rice Bran Oil
  • 1 egg
  • 60 grams fresh orange juice, (approximately half an orange)
  • 85 grams Plain Wholemeal Flour
  • 150 grams plain flour
  • 2 teaspoons bicarbonate soda
  • 1 teaspoon mixed spice
  • 50 grams brown sugar
  • 30 grams wheat germ
5

Recipe's preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees and line a muffin tin with patty pans (or grease well).

  2. Place orange peel in bowl and grate for 8 seconds speed 9 (I actually don't do this step, but instead use a microplane to zest the orange straight into the bowl at Step 4).

  3. Add carrot and dates to bowl and grate for 15-20 seconds on speed 6. Scrape down the sides.

  4. Add yoghurt, oil, (orange zest if not added earlier), orange juice and egg to the bowl and mix for 10 seconds, speed 4 reverse.

  5. Add all remaining ingredients (mixed spice, flours, sugar, wheatgerm, bicarb) and mix for 15 seconds, speed 4, reverse.

  6. Fill muffin tray cups almost to the top and bake for 13 - 15 minutes. (Takes 13 mins in my fan-forced oven).

    Delicious! I didn't have yogurt so substituted with milk. Still yum!! Will make again.

    Instead of mixed spice I just used cinnamon. Also used flaxseed meal & brewer's yeast instead of wheat germ to boost my milk supply.

    What a versatile recipe! I stumbled across this recipe when I was looking for a muffin to have alongside my smoothie in the morning.

    I used honey instead of sugar and coconut oil as it was what I had on hand and threw in some chia seeds and pepitas at the final stage.

    Will definitely be using this recipe again!!!

    Delicious. I had to tweak the recipe slightly as I only had white self raising flour. I used maple syrup instead of sugar. Omited the wheatgerm as I didnt have any. I also added a banana to use some up that were going brown and also added a handful of sultanas. Thank you for the recipe tmrc_emoticons.D

    Very versatile recipe, I will try whole orange zest next time,and

    I think they would be lovely with a lemon cream cheese frosting, as I like the zing !! 

    Some will be going in the freezer for easy snacks to take to work. tmrc_emoticons.)

    As my go to yogurt sub I use the same amount of soy/ rice milk with 1 tsp of cornflour added. Works a treat every time. I have soy yogurt but it's too expensive to use in cooking! Hope this helps!

    Submitted by TeamElliot on 28. May 2016 - 14:26.

    Coconut cream. Coconut Yoghurt, Soy Yoghurt or Rice Yoghurt could be alternative options. Note that Coconut cream esp. is a higher fat content than Natural Yoghurt.

  • These are honestly the best

    Submitted by Julie Bird on 18. January 2015 - 08:09.

    These are honestly the best muffins I have ever made, and believe me I've made plenty. I was 50g short of dates so added some sultanas with the flour etc.  I also didn't have wholemeal flour so used all white flour. They rowe beautifully and cooked to perfection.  Hubby gave big thumbs up and immediately scoffed two.  Oh and I didn't tell him they had dates in them, he hates dates with a vengeance.

    Delicious! I had to substitute a few things purely because of what I had available in the fridge & cupboard and they still came out of the oven as deliciously light muffins! I used light cream instead of yog and sultanas instated of dates - so it's clearly a great recipe that can be adapted. Thank you! :0)

  • I needed to improvise quite a

    Submitted by Litker on 8. June 2014 - 16:49.

    I needed to improvise quite a bit - used apple purée instead of oil and orange juice and used sultanas instead of dates. Only had plain flour and had started the batter before I realised I could have milled some spelt or rye for the WM flour. I added oats in place of the wheat germ as well, and Cinnamon and nutmeg in place of mixed spice. Used baking powder in place of bicarb.

    I'm sure it is the lack of oil, but a considerable amount of the muffin stayed on the paper. Next time I will mill some WM flour first and use some oil. The apple purée tasted fantastic in them and I love the fact that my vege-refusing 3 year old happily ate something with carrots in it!! Very tasty and wholesome.
