Sweet and Savoury Carrot Muffins

Savoury - Carrot and Capsicum and Ricotta Muffins

3 eggs whisk by hand or in mixer add
salt , pepper , herbs and spices
(I used some thyme and oregano)
add 125 ml oil i.e. olive, grape seed, sunflower etc
 
Once egg mixture doubled in size fold gently in dry ingredients with spatula
1.5 cups plain flour
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp cream of tartar
 
In a separate bowl prepare and once your egg and dry ingredients are incorporated
fold through your cheese and vegetable mix
crumble ricotta
add tasty cheese
grate 1/2 carrot
1 green capsicum (could add other seasonal vegetables i.e. peas, zucchini, broccoli, kale etc..)
 
I greased muffin bar tin with oil,  but you can use mixture in a baking tray, fry off as fritters (use a egg ring to help make round shape)
 
These are great eaten when freshly made but also can be frozen and the put into kids lunch boxes or reheated for a light bite :)
