Apple Carrot Mini Muffins
These tasty little muffins are sweetened with apple and contain a sneaky serving of carrots. I just love any way of sneaking veggies into cakes and muffins for my toddler!

These itty bitty muffins make a great healthy kids snack and are sure to be a big hit with your little one.


  • 1 cup carrot, finely grated
  • 1/4 cup apple, finely grated
  • 2/3 cup wholemeal self raising flour
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup milk


Preheat oven to 180 C (355 F) and line a mini muffin tray with paper muffin cups.

Put grated carrot in a bowl of boiled water to soften.

Sift flour into a mixing bowl.

Whisk egg and milk together, then add to flour and mix well.

Strain carrot, let cool for a few minutes, then squeeze out excess water.

Add carrot and apple to mixture and mix to combine.

Fill mini muffin cups 3/4 full with the mixture.

Bake for approx 25 mins, or until toothpick inserted comes out clean.


  • Carrots are packed full of beta-carotene, which our bodies convert into vitamin A. Carrots are one of the best sources of vitamin A. Vitamin A is good for your skin, bones, teeth, and vision. Beta-carotene is also what gives carrots their distinct orange colour.
  • Apples are high in fiber and keep you feeling fuller for longer without consuming a lot of calories. This is because it takes our bodies a while to digest the complex fiber in apples.
