  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

Recipe Notes

  • 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.
