Breakfast like I always say should be easy as it should be delicious and filling! , this muffins recipe is a perfect example of that above saying.
Muffins are very similar to cupcakes, only lighter; just imagine the beauty of devouring yummy, warm and delicious cakes in the morning for breakfast, ah that will definitely make your day right? Well this muffins has carrots and coconut making it a very healthy and filling meal and not just a snack.
As with most of my recipes, this one is very easy to make and doesn’t need much skills, I used fresh coconut in this recipe, I simply took the coconut flesh out and cut it into tiny shavings, it’s always best to used fresh coconut, but of you can’t get one, feel free to use the store bought desiccated coconut, so let’s get to it guys.
1 1/2 Cup of flour
1/4 cup of sugar
1 teaspoon of salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 cup fresh coconut shavings
1 carrot (grated)
1 cup milk
3 tablespoon melted butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Prepare your cupcake pan or even tea mugs that you don’t use anymore with some butter, make sure to coat every part of the pan or mug with butter and set aside. Preheat your oven for 20minutes at 275 degrees.
In a large bowl put all of the dry ingredients together (flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, nutmeg) and whisk to combine.
In a separate bowl mix together the egg, milk, melted butter ,milk and vanilla extract , then pour this mix into the dry ingredients and whisk to combine properly , add in your grated carrots as well as your coconut ( save some of the coconut to place on the top of your muffins), mix this in until all is combined.
NOTE– the batter will be thick and a bit lumpy but don’t worry no need to over mix it or your muffins will turn out hard instead of light and fluffy.
Scoop the batter into your prepared pan or mug , be sure not to fill them to the top , this gives took for your muffins batter to rise , place a few coconut shavings on top of your batter and place them in your pre- heated oven , bake these for 15minutes or until a tooth pick inserted comes out dry and clean.
Serve your muffins with hot cup of coffee or cocoa with a side of protein and enjoy. This is a perfect breakfast for weekends when the entire family can sit together and savor every taste and flavour.
