Healthy carrot muffins

Easy to bake, with very few ingredients and steps to go, muffins could be any first timers’ delight.

I like to bake muffins with added fruits and flavors to add variety for my kids’ snack box. Carrot being one of my favorites in vegetables I often use it in most of my cooking. Eggless Carrot muffins can be made in advance and frozen in refrigerator for future use. You can defrost the muffins in microwave whenever you require. It stays good for almost 4-5 days at normal temperature, in an airtight container.

  • 1 tbsp whole-wheat flour
  • 1 cup grated carrots

  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp of baking soda
  • A pinch of salt
  • 1 tbsp curd
