Olive or canola oil spray
1 cup wholemeal self-raising flour
¾ cup white self-raising flour
¼ teaspoon paprika or curry powder
1 large carrot, peeled and grated
1 parsnip, peeled and grated
2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
2 tablespoons chopped parsley or basil
2 eggs, beaten
2 tablespoons oil
1 cup low-fat milk


Preheat oven to 190°C. Lightly spray muffin trays with oil. Sift flours into a large bowl, returning husks to the bowl. Add paprika and fold in carrot, parsnip, cheese and herbs. In a separate bowl mix eggs, oil and milk. Pour into the dry ingredients. Lightly combine but do not over-mix. Spoon into a greased 12 – muffin tray and bake for 25 minutes or until golden brown and firm to touch. Cool on a wire rack.

Hot tip! These muffins freeze well and can be defrosted and microwaved to serve warm.
