Morning Glory Muffins
2 cups wheat flour/all –purpose flour
1 cup brown sugar
2 tsp baking soda
½ tsp salt
2 tsp cinnamon powder
½ tsp ground ginger (I used shahjeera)
½ cup raisins
2 tbsp chia seeds (sabja)
½ cup nuts (chopped walnuts or almonds or cashews)
¼ cup sunflower seeds
½ cup shredded coconut (I didn’t use)
½ cup oil
¼ cup orange juice (I used cranberry +1 tbsp lemon juice)
2 tsp vanilla essence
3 medium carrots
1 large apple
Add flour, sugar, baking soda, salt, cinnamon powder, shahjeera or ginger, chia seeds, nuts, sunflower seeds and coconut if using in a large bowl. Whisk to combine.
Chop apple and carrots to big chunks. Put few pieces in a chopper and pulse a few times to get small pieces. (OR you can grate them).
Add to the flour mixture and mix.
In another bowl, whisk eggs, oil, vanilla and juice and to flour and mix well.
The mixture will be little liquidy.
Fill muffin cups almost full and bake in a preheated oven at 150 degree for 25 -30 minutes or until a toothpick comes clean when inserted in the center of a cupcake.
Wrap individually in cling wrap and freeze few for later use.
