Nutritional values

Grated carrots and apples not only make the muffins super juicy, they also provide an extra portion of vitamins. And because rapeseed oil instead of butter makes the dough smooth, the proportion of saturated fatty acids is also within a favourable range.

Anyone planning a child's birthday party has a lot to prepare. So it makes sense to bake the muffins in stock and simply freeze them until the big event!
