Quick to put together, especially if you use a blender or food processor to grate the carrots. Looks lovely too. Nuts and/or seeds add protein content as well as taste. The pineapple is a great addition.

I seldom bake desserts. So to get muffin recipes in, I decided to bake them for breakfast. I wasn’t too sure of that at first. Usually I just put together some yogurt and fresh fruit. Baking in the early morning was a new adventure for me.
Interestingly, I am finding it fun. Muffins are quite simple to make and take only 15-20 minutes in the oven, so I can be eating warm muffins just half an hour after pulling the ingredients out of my cupboard.
There’s a little extra preparation with these: roasting the chopped peanuts and seeds. But that only adds about 3 minutes to preparation. I used coconut oil both in the muffins and to grease the pans.
