From this month onward I’ll be collaborating with a group of fabulous free from bloggers to bring you themed recipes – this month’s theme is #FreeFromEaster – treats to bake with the children. I’ve created some delicious spiced carrot muffins which I loved making with my two little people – they enjoyed taste testing them too!

You can find my recipe below, be sure to check out Mel’s (Le Coin De Mel) yummy recipe from yesterday, as well as Nathalie’s chocolate marshmallow crispie squares, Emma’s berry breakfast Easter nests and Midge’s apple, date and walnut hot cross buns and Rebecca’s quick chocolate cream nests. Keep your eyes peeled for recipes from Vicki, Laura, Kirsty, Kate, Eb, Grace, Mandy, and Nova.

Dairy, soya, gluten, wheat & refined sugar-free spiced carrot muffins.

Makes 16.

You will need

  • 340g plain flour (I use Vicki’s gluten and rice free flour blend)
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 80g coconut sugar
  • 50g melted dairy free butter (such as Vitalite)
  • A pinch of salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp nutmeg
  • 200ml orange juice
  • 1 medium carrot – grated

In a bowl, combine the flour, coconut sugar, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg before adding the melted dairy free butter, orange juice and egg. Fold until you have achieved a paste like consistency.
Stir in the shredded carrot and fold again until all the carrot is coated in the mixture.
Divide equally into muffin cases and bake for 15-20 minutes at 200 degrees.
