Carrot and Turmeric Mini Muffins

A last minute muffin recipe for starving little stomachs. These carrot and turmeric mini muffins had a huge success in the family, even with my 2 years old! Save the muffin base (I use bookmarks on my laptop) because you can then make your own recipe with any leftovers.

I usually make 20 mini muffins and freeze some because they are a very handy snack to give to my toddler.

Ingredients for 20 mini muffins:

Muffin base:

  • 150g flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 eggs
  • 6 cl extra-virgin olive oil
  • salt, pepper


  • 2 small carrots
  • 30g grated cheddar
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric powder (or curry)


Peel and grate carrots.

Preheat oven to 180ยฐC.

In a large bowl, combine all the ingredients and season with salt and pepper.

Place muffin preparation in a muffin tray, preferably in silicon (easy to remove from the mould and to wash!). Place in oven for 20 minutes at 180ยฐC.
