  • Muffin Tray
  • Muffin Cases
  • 1 Large Bowl
  • 2 Small Bowls

 


Method
  1. Pre-heat the oven to 200 Celsius / 180 fan / 390 Fahrenheit. Line a 12-hole muffin pan with muffin cases.
  2. In a small bowl mash together the banana, lemon zest and juice. Add the eggs and beat until incorporated. Set aside.
  3. In a separate bowl melt together the coconut oil and the honey. Set aside.
  4. In a large bowl whisk together the flours, baking soda, baking powder, spices and banana powder.
  5. Add the coconut oil/honey mix and stir in.
  6. Add the carrot and raisins and mix before adding the banana/lemon/egg mix and quickly beating in. The mixture will puff up a bit as the lemon juice reacts with the baking soda so work a little quickly. However don’t panic if the door bell goes or the phone rings. The mixture will stiffen up as it sits, but it will not spoil.
  7. Place large spoonfuls of the mixture into each muffin case, almost filling them. The batter doesn’t rise much. Scatter over the poppy seeds.
  8. Bake to 15 – 20 minutes, until a cocktail stick inserted into the middle comes out clean.
  9. Leave to cool in the tin for 5 minutes and then transfer to a wire rack.
  10. Store in an air-tight container for up to 5 days.
  11. The muffins are best eaten warm – reheat in the oven (150 Celsius / 130 fan / 300 Fahrenheit for 5-7 minutes.
  12. To freeze the muffins – once completely cold wrap each one in foil or cling-film and place in a suitable freezer container. It may be best to remove the paper cases first. Defrost and then reheat as above.
