Sin-A-Mon Tales

A chronicle of my kitchen experiments, a little healthy a little indulgent

Carrot Muffins (post no 29)

I tried making muffins for the first time, I have made cake multiple times but not muffins and I was very happy with the results, everyone at home loved them too 🙂


  • 1/2 cup (50 grams) walnuts toasted and coarsely chopped
  • 2 cups (270 grams) grated raw carrot (about 2-3 peeled carrots)
  • 1 large apple, peeled and grated
  • 2 cups (280 grams) flour
  • 1 1/4 cups (250 grams) powdered sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon (3.5 grams) salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup grated coconut
  • 3/4 cup cooking oil
  • 3 large egg


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C) and place rack in center of oven. .
  • Toast the walnuts for about 8 minutes or until lightly browned and fragrant. Let cool and then chop coarsely.
  • Peel and finely grate the carrots and apple. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and ground cinnamon. Stir in the nuts and coconut. Set aside.
  • In a separate bowl whisk together the eggs, oil, and vanilla extract. Fold the wet ingredients, along with the grated carrot and apple, into the flour mixture, stirring just until moistened. Evenly divide the batter between the prepared muffin cups and bake for 20 – 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
