Carrot cakes.

This week many people will be hosting "Australia's Biggest Morning Tea" events to raise money for Cancer research and patient support. Byron's work are hosting theirs tomorrow and my work will host theirs on Thursday.

My contribution to the goodies are some really simple and healthy carrot cake muffins. Well healthy in that they are made with olive oil, wholemeal flour and brown sugar. Not so healthy when you see what went into the cream cheese frosting and the marzipan carrots!

But then life is all about balance isn't it.

One muffin in my right hand, one muffin in my left....!

  5. I hope the morning tea today was a great success. The muffins look very tasty, carrot cake without cream cheese frosting wouldn't be the same, it's a must have:) I know my hubby would love these, carrot cake is his favourite. xo

  6. Yum! I love to drink tea, and your muffins look like the perfect companion to a hot cup :)
