Equipment

  • Food Processor or Blender

Ingredients

For the Dry Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cups Oats
  • 1/2 cup Pecans
  • 1/2 cup Walnuts
  • 2 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp Baking Powder
  • 1 tbsp Baking Soda

For the Wet Ingredients

  • 1 cup Soy Milk
  • 1 whole Banana
  • 1 cup Carrots
  • 1/2 cup Maple Syrup
  • 3/4 cup Almond Butter

For The Flax Egg

  • 3 tbsp Flax Seeds
  • 3 tbsp Water

Instructions

  • First, start making your Flax Egg. In a small container or glass, mix together Flax Seeds with Water. Set aside.
  • Preheat the oven to 165C°.
  • Next, prepare the Oat Flour by putting the Oats in a blender or a food processor. Blend until smooth or until it forms a floury consistency.
  • Roughly chop up the Walnuts and Pecans. In a box grater or a food processor, shred the carrots.
  • In a bowl, combine the Oat Flour, Cinnamon, Baking Powder, Baking Soda, chopped Walnuts and Pecans. Whisk until everything is well combined.
  • In a food processor or blender, blend Banana, Soy Milk and Maple Syrup. Blend until smooth.
  • Pour the wet mixture from the food processor/blender onto the dry mixture. Mix everything together until a thick batter forms.
  • Next, fold in the shredded Carrots, Almond Butter and the Flax Egg. Make sure, that the ingredients are evenly distributed throughout the batter.
  • Divide the batter evenly into a greased or lined muffin tray. The batter will approximately make about 10 normal sized muffins. Bake for about 35-45 minutes at 165C°, or until the tops are golden and a toothpick comes out cleanly!
