Carrot, Fig and Walnut Muffins

This is based on a Jamie Oliver recipe. It’s the sweet potato muffins from a few weeks ago, but changed around a bit.

This whole thing can be done in the food processor.

400g carrots – don’t bother peeling, but wash if grubby, obviously.
200g demerara sugar (original recipe asked for 400g, just not needed.)
Good handful walnuts (Lidl do lovely ones)
6 dried, soaked figs (I had pre soaked. Plumptious little jammy things)
2 tsp black treacle
4 eggs
300g plain flour
170ml olive oil
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp speculaas spice
1 tsp mixed spice

Cut the carrot into chunks. Whizz in the food processor until it’s very fine. I just use the normal blade, no grating attachments to clean!
Add in everything else. Whizz until it’s very well mixed.
Line a tin with cupcake cases, fill each one three quarters full.
I topped mine with a walnut.
Bake at 180C for 20 minutes.
This made 18. (I use an ice cream scoop to portion it out.)
