Ingredients (serves 8):

    250g self-raising flour
    85g dark muscavado sugar
    1tsp cinnamon
    1 tsp baking powder
    1/4tsp salt
    1 egg, lightly beaten
    200g low-fat yogurt
    115g butter, melted
    2 tsp Nielsen-Massey Vanilla Extract
    50g grated carrot (or 1 medium sized carrot grated)
    100g peeled, grated apple (or 1 ½ apples, peeled and grated)
    100g coarsely chopped pecans
    70g raisins
    70g dried cranberries
    50g desiccated coconut

Method:

1. Pre-heat the oven to 200’/400’F/Gas6. Oil a 12 holed muffin tin (or two tins of 6) with a little vegetable oil, or with paper muffin cases.

2. Combine the flour, sugar, cinnamon, baking powder and salt in a large bowl. Add the egg, yogurt, butter and Nielsen-Massey Vanilla Extract and mix with a wooden spoon – do not over mix. Stir in carrot, apple, pecans, raisins, cranberries and coconut. It will be a thick mixture.

3. Fill each hole full with the mixture. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on a wire rack until warm, and serve immediately for best results!
