energy muffins

Carrots, apples, coconut, sultanas — doesn’t that sound healthy to you? :P

Even if you’re not in need of that extra energy boost to start your morning, even if you don’t feel like stirring a mash of orange-green pulp in your mixing bowl, I would implore you to try this. Moist, not overly sweet, full of flavour and bite, this recipe is definitely for keeps.

Or at least on those days when you want to feel healthier.
