APPLE & WALNUT BREAKFAST MUFFINS
These are a really tasty way to start the day. lots of nutritious ingredients & half the sugar you'd get in most shop bought muffins.
you can change the recipe to use up whatever you have in the cupboard, by using different kinds of nuts, seeds or dried fruit. The only limit is your imagination!

150g doves farm self raising flour
50g light olive oil
1x 75g carrot finely grated
