Cherry Muesli Muffins…

We are always looking for new ideas for grab and go breakfasts and these are easy to make while cooking dinner and ready for the next morning, you can also batch bake these and store in an airtight container for a couple of days.

Adding the carrot into this might sound strange but trust us as long as its finely grated you really can not taste it PLUS helps bulk the mixture out. You can also use grated courgette too which is equally as delicious, and grated apple too.

Some recommended items from our kitchen for making this dish..

  • Double sided dry and liquid measuring spoons for times when you need to measure both liquid and dry ingredients.
  • Silicone whisks in varying sizes, much prefer silicone to metal as it rusts.
  • Cheese grater with varying graters, we use the small grater for our flapjacks so the carrot is nice and fine.
  • Mixing bowls are always wanted in this household and these stackable ones save so much space in our cupboards.
  • Muffin cases
  • Muffin tray

  • How about changing up the fruit to apple and adding in some mixed spice and drizzling toffee sauce over the top once cooked.
  • Strawberries and white chocolate chips also go well.
  • Raspberries, blueberries, blackcurrants all work equally well too.
