Morning Glory Muffins/ Breakfast Muffins
Morning Glory or Breakfast Muffins are perfect to kick start the day. These are made with wheat flour, oatmeal, apple, carrot and nuts all rolled into one.
- 1 3/4 cup Wheat flour 100 g
- 1/4 cup Oatmeal 30 g
- 1/2 tsp Baking Powder
- 1/4 tsp Baking Soda
- 1 pinch Salt
- 1/2 tsp Cinnamon Powder
- 1/4 cup Oil 50 ml
- 1/2 cup Curd
- 3/4 cup Powdered Sugar
- 1 tsp Vanilla Essence
- 1/2 cup Apple Grated
- 1/2 cup Grated carrot
- 1/4 cup Nuts chopped finely
- Line muffin liners in the muffins tray.
- Take flour, oatmeal, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon powder and salt in a bowl and sift it thrice. Sifting is very important as it aerates the flour making it light as a result the muffins too will come out light and fluffy. Keep it aside.
- Take oil, curd, sugar and vanilla essence in a big bowl and mix it with a whisk for 2 to 3 minutes, till the mix becomes creamy. Start preheating oven to 200 degrees C.
- Grate apple and carrot. Mix 1 tablespoon flour (from the above mix of flour only) in the chopped nuts.
- In the wet mix, add dry mix in 2 or 3 instalments. Mix very lightly. Do not beat the batter at this stage else gluten will be formed making the muffins chewy.
- Lastly, add grated carrot, apple and flour coated nuts. Again mix very lightly. The consistency of this mix should be thick. Put this batter in muffin liners using a spoon.
- Top with confetti or tutti fruit or chocolate chips or almonds, as you wish. ( I used Blueberry and slivered almonds).
- Bake for 20 to 25 minutes. Fruit muffins take little longer to get ready.(mine took 30 minutes)Insert a toothpick to check for the doneness of muffins. If need be, bake for some more time. If remains uncooked then they will get soggy.
- When done, take out and let them cool on wire rack. When completely cool, store in an airtight container. Remains good for 3 to 4 days in cool weather. Otherwise, keep them in the refrigerator.
- Serve in breakfast or pack in your little one's lunch box.
- Grate apple at the end or they may get discoloured. In case you grate it before then squeeze some lemon juice to it to prevent discolouration.
- Flour is added to nuts so that they get evenly distributed in the muffins and do not sink at the bottom.
- Use any cooking oil, be it olive or refined or any other. Avoid mustard oil and coconut oil owing to their strong odours.
- You may grate apple with or without skin.
