Recipe: Carrot and Walnut Muffins

Yesterday morning I made some Wholemeal Carrot and Walnut Muffins, and they are actually awesome. I've never baked with wholemeal flour before and thought that they turned out really nicely. The recipe I used is roughly the recipe used on Anna Saccone's banana muffin video.

I had absolutely loads of carrots that needed using, so decided to making 'carrot cake muffins' would be a great way to use them up - especially because I don't have a juicer.. wah!

In April 2012, Tom and I went to western Indonesia for 10 days for my first 'off the beaten track' Asia experience. It was truly the best holiday of my life and I don't know when and if it will ever be beaten.



In September 2012, I visited England on my holidays and Tom and I made time to visit the Harry Potter Studios in Leavesden. It was absolutely incredible and 100% recommend it for any HP fan :)
