Delicous and Healthy Carrot Cake Muffins

These carrot cake muffins combine freshly grated carrot with mashed banana, low GI wholemeal flour and almond meal to create a filling, tasty treat.

Kids and adults will both love these, and they freeze really well.

If you don’t happen to have any spare bananas, grated apple could also work really well.
