    Makes: 12


    75g sultanas
    100g white spelt flour
    100g wholegrain spelt flour
    2 tsp baking powder
    1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
    50g porridge oats, plus
    15g extra for the tops
    150g light soft brown sugar
    2 tsp ground cinnamon
    1 tsp ground ginger
    Whole nutmeg, for grating
    90ml vegetable oil
    50g Koko Plain
    2 large eggs
    200g carrots, peeled and coarsely grated
    Finely grated zest of 1 orange


    1 Preheat the oven to 200°C/gas mark 6. Line
    a 12-hole muffin tray with muffin cases. Soak the sultanas in a small bowl filled with boiling water for 5 minutes, to plump up. Drain and place to one side on a plate lined with kitchen paper.
    2 Add the flours, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda and 50g oats to a large bowl. Fold in the sugar, cinnamon and ginger. Grate about half a nutmeg into the mixture.
    3 In another bowl, whisk the oil and Koko together. Add the eggs and whisk them in. When just combined, fold this wet mixture into the flour mix. Fold in the carrots, orange zest and sultanas. Divide the mixture evenly between the 12 muffin cases. Sprinkle the remaining oats on the tops.
    4 Bake for 20 minutes or until the tops are golden and a cocktail stick inserted into the middle of a muffin comes out clean. Leave to cool in the tin for 5 minutes, then cool the muffins in their cases on a wire rack. Delicious served warm.
