Muffins, buns. Buns muffins. These are really buns, but buns generally are not stuffed with carrots and walnuts so I am calling them muffins. Whatever you want to call them, use a bun tray and normal bun cases for baking.

These are dense and spicy. Very tasty.

And I have handily worked out the calorie content of each muffin: 137 calories and 7 grams of fat. So, not bad compared to your average shop bought bun or cereal bar. And walnuts combat memory loss. What's not to love??!!


150g spelt flour
1 tsp baking powder
50g light muscovado sugar
40g chopped walnuts
1 large carrot finely grated
50g sultanas
½ tsp vanilla essence
45ml (3 tblsps) rapeseed oil
1 egg, beaten
1 tsp nutmeg
2 tsps cinnamon
60ml soya milk


• Pre heat oven to 200°C
• Line the bun tin with bun cases
Grate the carrot
• Mix the dry ingredients in a bowl
• Add the sultanas and walnuts
• Beat the egg in a bowl, with the milk and vanilla essence
• Mix in the grated carrots to the eggy mixture
• Mix in the oil
• Add this mix to the dry ingredients and combine well
• Divide the mix into the 12 bun cases (using two teaspoons!)
• Bake for 25 minutes
