Breakfast Seed Muffins

by Collette White | August 21, 2015

Good Morning friends and HAPPY Friday!

I am always looking for inspiration for breakfast, especially on those busier than usual mornings and the fact that I am catering for a family that between us all needs gluten, dairy, refined sugar and preservative free. These are perfect as they can be made the day before and eaten on the run … they are packed with protein and nutrients to give you energy for the day ahead and they are incredibly filling too! I hope you love them as much as we do!

Ingredients

1 medium green apple (approx. 130g)

2 large carrots (approx. 210g)

4 eggs

1 cup brown rice flour

½ cup coconut flakes

¼ cup oil of choice

¼ cup honey (or liquid sweetner of choice)

¼ cup sunflower seeds

¼ cup pepitas

¼ cup flaxseeds

3 tblspns fresh orange juice

2 tblspns chia seeds

2 tspns baking powder

1 tspn cinnamon

½ tspn nutmeg

good pinch salt 

Method

Preheat oven to 180c and place 12 paper patty cases into a muffin tray.

Grate apple and carrots and place into a large bowl.

(Thermomix Speed 5 / 6 seconds)

Place all the ingredients into the bowl with the apple and carrot and mix thoroughly.

Place even amounts of mixture into each muffin tin.

Bake for 30 minutes (time may vary depending on your oven).

Allow to cool for 5 minutes before enjoying OR allow to cool then store in an airtight container.

Notes

  • These are lovely at room temp or warmed again slightly in the oven
  • These are Savoury Muffins – I tried them without the honey but I do prefer that little bit in there. Of course you can leave it out if you prefer
  • Perfect for breakfast on the run
  • Get creative with adding your favourite ingredients to this ‘basic’ mixture for example sultanas, craisins, pineapple, sundried tomato, spinach, bacon, almonds etc! (not all at the same time of course!)
  • Eat ‘whole’ or you can cut them in half and serve them with butter or fetta and tomato etc on top!

Wishing you a truly wonderful week ahead! I look forward to connecting with you more again soon.
