Six Honey Carrot Muffins – perfect for two!



If you have 2 people in the house this is the perfect little recipe. I think 6 is perfect for today and just enough for tomorrow. These are moist from the olive oil and have lovely flavour from the honey, cinnamon and ginger.


What could be nicer on a Sunday morning than the smell of fresh muffins. Get the coffee and enjoy them while they are warm!



You will need:


  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/2 cup fruity olive oil
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 3/4 cup grated carrots

optional add 1 tsp orange zest, or a handful of chopped walnuts or dried cranberries





Step 1: grate carrots.


Step 2: in a bowl add all dry ingredients: flour, baking powder, salt, ground ginger and ground cinnamon. Mix.


Step 3: in another bowl add wet ingredients: olive oil, honey, vanilla, egg, milk and grated carrots. Mix.



Step 4: add the wet to the dry or the dry to the wet and stir until combined. If you wish to add some nuts or some dried cranberries this is the time to add them.



Step 5: scoop out the batter evenly into 6 paper lined muffin cups.



Step 6: Bake at 350 degrees F for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in a muffin comes out clean. Eat warm with a drizzle of extra honey or of course you can make a simple cream cheese icing to jazz them up but, I think they are delish just as they are!
