These breakfast-style muffins hold a tasty pineapple tropical twist to the classic carrot muffin. Not only are they moist and tasty; they’re made completely without eggs or dairy.

  1. Preheat the oven to gas 4, 180°C, fan 160°C. Place 10 muffin cases into a 12-cup muffin tin. Place the flour, ground almonds, sugar, cinnamon, bicarbonate of soda and baking powder in a bowl. 
  2. Finely chop the pineapple. Put the pieces in a sieve and drain off excess liquid. Add to the bowl. Chop up the walnut pieces and add to the bowl. Add the sunflower seeds.
  3. Now grate the carrot and mix in, then add the apple juice and oil. Briskly stir everything together, then spoon the mixture equally between the muffin cases. Bake for 25 minutes until risen and well browned. Leave to cool in the tin. Serve spread with dairy-free margarine.
