ABC muffins

These muffins are soft and fluffy but still lovely and moist. They’re perfect served warm with a little butter and make for a great breakfast or snack on the go.

This is a simple, clean recipe with only a few ingredients and no refined sugar. The muffins are sweetened with apple and maple syrup.


Banana: For added sweetness. Also a great source of vitamin C, potassium and magnesium.
Carrot and apples: Also high in fibre and vitamin C.
Maple syrup: For added sweetness.
Butter: For moisture and flavour. We like to serve our muffins warm, with a little extra butter spread on top.
Cinnamon: Adds a warm, spiced flavour.
Plain flour: For structure, texture and binding.
Baking powder: To help the muffins rise.


Egg: Add 1/2 cup applesauce/apple puree in place of egg.
Butter: Add 1/4 extra virgin olive oil in place of butter.


  1. Add all wet ingredients in a bowl (grated apple and carrot, mashed banana, butter, maple syrup and eggs). Stir.
  2. Add dry igredients (plain flour, baking powder, cinnamon).
  3. Mix together.
  4. Grease your muffin tray, add batter, bake for 15 minutes at 180C/350F

You can store leftover muffins in an airtight container, or freeze them for up to 3 months.

Enjoy! We love serving ours with a little butter xx
