  4. Stir in the oil until the mixture forms together.
  5. Spoon the mixture into cases and bake for 12 minutes or till cooked.

  • Its interesting that you use honey as a sweetener and there is a vegetable in it, I think I like this, Thankyou!


  • Upon reading some of the comments, thinking of using less oil for this. Will give it ago as sound delish.


  • Is there a mistake in the amount of oil for this recipe?
    Everything was going fine until I added the cup of coconut oil, it looked too much and I probably should have followed my instinct and used less but I preserved with the recipe exactly.

    The muffins wouldn’t cook properly no matter how long I cooked them for. They are soggy in the middle and taste like oil.

    What a sad waste of beautiful ingredients and my time. Sorry to be harsh but I’m really annoyed.


  • I followed the instructions to a tee and they came out a slimey, oily mess! Have tried cooking for double the recommended time but there isn’t enough dry ingredient for the muffins to set. Don’t waste your ingredients!


  • They look interesting but doesn’t really appeal to me.


  • Sounds yummy. I love cooking healthy food and this way they won’t know it’s healthy


  • Yum no refined sugar! Love the sound of these for the kids.


  • Nice one ! I love to bake with hidden veggies :)


  • haha. My husband is always trying to get the kids to eat zucchini. might sneak it in with these :)


  • I don’t have rice bran or coconut oil in the house, but I will definitely get some to give these a try, they look yum and would be a great healthy treat for my boys AND myself.


  • yummy…..these sound wonderful for breakfast.
    I love muffins for breakfast with a cuppa.


  • Can”t wait to try these tomorrow! I love trying healthy snack recipes for my kids.


  • An interesting combination of ingredients.


  • these sound interesting and rather too healthy


  • Does the spelt flour make it taste much different?
