apple carrot muffins recently I had all the ingredients and was determined to make them. It took me longer than I intended. So the apples sat in the fruit bowl sagging from neglect and the fridge remained full of carrots. Then I had a window of opportunity between an appointment and taking Sylvia to swimming. It was tight. I literally took them out of the oven and rushed out the door (only to find that the pool was closed).
I am sending these muffins to Baking Crumbs, a collection of lots of baking blog posts.

Apple Carrot Muffins
Adapted from Bite Sized Thoughts
1-1/2 cups plain flour
1/2 cup rolled oats
3 tsp baking powder
1 tsp mixed spice
3 apples (or 3/4 cup applesauce)
1 tbsp maple syrup
1/4 cup oil
1-1/2 cups grated carrots
3/4 cup soy milk
1/2 cup dried cranberries
Peel and slice apple. Stew in a small saucepan with a few spoons of water and a squeeze of lemon if you have it. When apple is pulpy, mash with a potato masher. Mine was still a little chunky. It should make about 3/4 cup of apples but if it is under, top up with some maple syrup.
Mix ingredients (including stewed apples or applesauce) together and bake in a 12 cup muffin tray at 180 C for 20-25 minutes. Cool on a wire rack.
NOTES: I used half wholemeal and half white flour. As they don't have much sugar they will not last long but freeze well.
