These carrot muffins come out fluffy and smell amazing. The riper the banana, the sweeter these will be. I’ve also made them using grated apples. Love how it’s all done in a blender.
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease 6 cups of a muffin tin.
Mix together oats and flaxseeds in a small bowl.
Combine oat mixture, banana, egg, peanut butter, honey, flax seeds, vanilla extract, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and salt in a blender. Process until smooth. Fold in grated carrots. Divide batter evenly among the prepared muffin cups.
Bake in the preheated oven until tops spring back when lightly pressed, about 18 minutes. Cool in the tin for 5 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

The best flavour of the flour can make a real difference to your bread. Different makers do vary. Extra-strong or Canadian flours, which are naturally higher in gluten, may give you a better rise than standard dough flours – especially if you’re make wholemeal bread , which not always getting bigger as well as white bread.
To make this in a dough , add all the ingredients to your breadmaker and follow the makers instructions.
A dough’s first rising can be done in the fridge overnight . This slows down the time it takes to rise to double its size, giving it a deeper flavour. It’s also a great limit , as you can start it night before , then clear it off the next day.
