SAVOURY CARROT MUFFINS
SUITABLE FROM 6 MONTHS
MAKES 6 MUFFINS / PREPARE 25 MINS / COOK 50 MINS
500 g Carrots
3 Free range eggs
1 tsp Maple syrup
100 g Cream cheese
25 g Refined olive oil
150 g Wholemeal flour
50 g Oats
1 tsp Bicarbonate of soda
3 Basil leaves, chopped
Pour water into the water reservoir of your Béaba Babycook (level 3 for Original, Solo, Duo and Neo), (Solo Express; Eco Mode 140ml).
Peel and grate your carrots and insert them into the steaming basket of your Béaba Babycook ® and start the steaming cycle.
In a bowl mix the oats, flour and bicarbonate of soda.
Once the carrots are nice and soft, remove the steaming basket and reserve the liquid left at the bottom of the bowl to thin the batter if it looks too thick.
Pour the cooked carrot into your Babycook ® bowl and pulse a few times to obtain a purée. Transfer to a large mixing bowl.
Add the eggs, syrup, cream cheese and olive oil and mix well.
Add the oats, flour and bicarbonate of soda mix to the carrot bowl. Mix gently so the wet ingredients are just incorporated into the dry mix. Do not overmix or the muffins will turn out tough.
Add the chopped basil and mix, very gently, once more. Add reserved cooking juices if required.
Spoon the mixture into silicone cupcake moulds or your Béaba Multiportion ® and bake at 180°C or 160 °C for fan oven for 50 mins.
Let your muffins cool down in the mould for about 10 minutes before turning out onto a wire rack to cool down completely.
