Veggie breakfast muffins

Root veg, such as parsnips and carrots, work surprisingly well in breakfast bakes. Add wholemeal flour for a fibre boost, and oats for slow-release energy

Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp milled flaxseed
  • juice of 1 unwaxed or scrubbed orange (about 75ml juice)
  • 175ml plant milk
  • 4 tbsp agave or maple syrup
  • 50ml vegetable oil, plus extra to grease
  • 200g wholemeal (or white) plain flour
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 50g rolled oats, plus 1tbsp to top
  • 3 tbsp mixed seeds
  • 40g raisins or sultanas
  • 125g carrot, parsnip or squash, grated coarsely
  • 40g young leaf spinach, shredded
  • 150g mixed frozen berries of your choice (don’t defrost)

Step by step

Get ahead
The muffins keep for up to 3 days in an airtight container or can be frozen.
  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C, fan 180°C, gas 6 and brush a 12-hole muffin tin well with oil (or use silicone muffin cases). Mix the flaxseed with 3 tablespoons of water and set aside to thicken. Combine the orange zest and juice, milk, syrup and oil in a jug. Don’t worry if the milk curdles slightly – this is due to the acidity of the orange juice.
  2. Sift the flour, baking powder, bicarb and a pinch of salt into a mixing bowl, tipping in the bran that gets left in the sieve. Stir in the oats, 2 tablespoons of mixed seeds, raisins, grated veg and the spinach, then add the milk mixture and the soaked flax. Stir to combine, adding the still-frozen berries for the last few stirs of the spoon. Dollop into the muffin tin and sprinkle with the rest of the seeds and oats.
  3. Bake for 25-30 minutes until risen, springy and golden. Cool in the tin for 5-10 minutes, then remove and transfer to a wire cooling rack.
    Tip
    These muffins are vegan. If you prefer, you can replace the soaked flaxseed in the muffins with 1 large egg, use standard milk instead of plant, and honey instead of syrup.
