Carrot Muffins with Granola
I love this carrot cake recipe. It’s a moist cake jammed pack with carrot, so its an easy way to get another veggie into our kids without them knowing! Enjoy these with a little twist for some extra goodness.
- 1 cup plain flour
- 2tsp baking powder
- 2tsp ground cinnamon
- 2 eggs
- ¾ cup vegetable oil (or olive oil)
- ¾ cup caster sugar
- 1 ½ cups grated carrot
Cream Cheese Frosting
- 75g cream cheese at room temperature
- 25g butter
- 1 ½ cups icing sugar
- Fodden Granola
- Grease either a 20cm round cake pan and line it with baking paper, or to make cupcakes, line a cupcake tray with patty pans. Pre heat oven to 180deg
- Sift flour, baking powder and cinnamon into a bowl. Place the eggs, oil and caster sugar in a food processor. Process until combined. Add flour mixture to processor in two batches. Process briefly between additions. Add grated carrots and process briefly until combined. Pour the mixture into the tin or patty pans.
- Cook for about 45min (less for cupcakes) or until cooked when tested. Stand in the pan for 10 minutes before turning out onto a wire rack to cool.
- To make the frosting, place the cream cheese and butter in a food processor. Process until light and fluffy. Add sifted icing sugar mixture, process until smooth.
- Spread the icing over a cooled cake or cupcakes and sprinkle with a generous amount of Fodden granola just before serving. Enjoy!
Yoghurt, Fruit and Granola
This is a great start to the day. Its quick and easy, but it will keep you going for may hours.
Stewed or tinned fruit
Your favourite yoghurt
It's all in the layers, so you get a bit of everything in each bite. Place your desired yoghurt on the bottom, add your fruit of choice (can be fresh, tinned or stewed) and then sprinkle with a generous amount of Fodden Granola in your favourite blend.
Chia Seed pudding sprinkled with granola
Chia seeds are a great wholefood treat for after dinner. Spice it up with a little crunch for something a bit of extra nutrition.
- 1 cup of coconut milk
- 2 tablespoons of cocoa or cacao powder
- 3 tablespoons of maple (or your favourite sweetener)
- ¼ cup of chia seeds
- Fodden Granola
- Place the coconut milk, cocoa powder, maple and chia seeds in a bowl, mix these really well to make sure the cocoa is incorporated. Adjust the sweetness or the amount of cocoa if desired. Place in the fridge for around an hour or I prefer overnight to ensure these seeds soften right up.
- Serve the desired amount into a bowl and sprinkle with a generous amount of granola on top. Do this just before serving to preserve the crunch in the granola.
Chocolate Bark with Granola
We all need a little sweet treat with a cup of tea at night. This is a super simple recipe to take the guilt away – well a little bit anyway!
- 1x Block of your favourite chocolate (choose the best quality you can afford)
- A handful of your favourite Fodden granola blend
- Melt your chocolate in the microwave or over a double boiler (a bowl over boiling water, be sure the bowl doesn’t touch the water) on the stove.
- Once its melted, spread it out at your desired thickness on a tray prepare with baking paper.
- While it's still melted, sprinkle over as much or little granola that you like.
- Let it set at room temperature – the fridge may make the granola soft.
- Break it up and enjoy! Try not to eat it in one sitting!
So many of our customers say they love to just snack on our granola straight from the packet! If you are going on an outdoor adventure or road trip, pop some granola in some little tubs to snack on. To make it a little bit more decadent, add some good quality chocolate chips and extra dried fruit.
