Nutritional values

Carrot and apple give the muffins a natural sweetness. In addition, flakes, flour and seeds provide plenty of complex carbohydrates and fiber: So the blood sugar level remains constant.

If the sweetness from carrots and apple is enough, you can also omit the maple syrup and thus save some sugar. Instead of cow's milk, you can also use a vegetable alternative, for example almond drink. And also with another type of flour, for example whole wheat or whole emmer flour, the cakes taste really good. You can additionally sprinkle the muffins with pumpkin seeds.
