Carrot and hazelnut muffins


Breakfast these days was based on carrot and hazelnut muffins. When I took them out of the oven I thought they were really ungainly, so squat and rough, but first their scent and then their flavor convinced me to dedicate more time to write the recipe.
Carrots are one of my obsessions, I love them in any way. I even managed to indigestion of carrots once, such is the passion. This is demonstrated by the fact that among the recipes published in recent years there are 3 carrot cakes:

Carrot and apple cake without milk and eggs
Wholemeal carrot and almond cake
Wreath of apples and carrots

This recipe was taken from an old issue of Saveurs, French cuisine magazine that I used to get when I went over there. Slightly adapted to my tastes, i.e. I reduced the sugar and replaced the 00 flour with wholemeal flour. Muscovado sugar, with an intense and strong aroma, will give small caramel pearls inside the muffins, as well as dotting the outside. If you are looking for something delicious but also healthy, these muffins are designed for you.

Carrot and hazelnut muffins

280 g of carrots excluding waste
130 g muscovado sugar
3 eggs
100 g of butter at room temperature
200 g of wholemeal flour
100 g of hazelnut flour
1 teaspoon of yeast
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon powdered ginger
latte q.b.

For 14 small muffins.
Finely grate the carrots.
With an electric whisk or in a planetary mixer, work the soft butter with the sugar.
Add one egg at a time while continuing to work the dough.
In a bowl, combine the flours, yeast and spices and mix. At this point add the powders to the liquids and the carrots. Mix quickly. If the dough is difficult to work with, add a few tablespoons of milk.
Distribute the mixture into the muffin cups and bake at 180°C for 15-20 minutes.
Leave to cool outside the oven.

NB: with these quantities of dough you can also prepare a cake. Same procedure and then turn everything into a 22cm non-stick cake tin. Increase the cooking times, at least 30 minutes, but always do the toothpick test!
