Ingredients

  • 1 1/4 cups rice flour
  • 1 cup old fashioned rolled oats — (gluten-free)
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup almond milk — or any other milk you prefer
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup grated carrot
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips
  • 1 cup chopped nuts — walnuts, Brazil nut, cashew, almond

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350F. If you are using a silicone muffin pan you don't need to prepare it with cooking spray or oil. But if it isn't the case, prepare your muffin pan by lining the cavities with paper liners or greasing them with butter, cooking spray or oil. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, add flour, oats, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. Mix well to combine.
  3. In another bowl, beat the eggs with a fork and after that add yogurt, maple syrup, brown sugar, almond milk and vanilla. Mix well and add the grated carrots.
  4. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, mixing until combined. Add chocolate chips and nuts.
  5. Pour the batter evenly among the muffin cups, filling them 3/4 of the way.
  6. Bake for 20-22 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the centre comes out clean.
  7. Let cool for 5 minutes in the pan, then carefully remove the muffins out of the pan and place them on a wire rack to cool completely.
