Carrot and fruit loop muffins

       Muffins have always been a favourite at home. And you guessed right- chocolate muffins are the best!! But lately I have been wanting to try putting in some unusual ingredients into the batter to make it more interesting especially for my son who has now started demanding new and delicious snacks everytime. His recent favourite has been cornflakes.So I keep buying different kinds of breakfast cereals and he just loves them. When I made muffins the other day, I decided to use some fruit loops in it. Carrots always makes the cake colourful and tasty , so that went into my cake too. I got the basic idea of the recipe from here. They were so delicious. My son had a couple of them in one go!!
Recipe Courtesy- Janet is hungry 
I have used the similar ingredients from the original recipe , but some ingredients and its measurements and the method slightly differ.
fruit loop muffins
 Ingredients-
Carrots- 1 big grated(around 1 cup)
 Kellogg fruit loops- 1 cup
 Self raising flour- 2 cups
 Butter-4tbsp
 Brown sugar- 1 1/2 cups(add 1 cup if you prefer it less sweeter)
 Egg-1
 Milk- 3/4 cup

Method-
  Combine the butter and brown sugar and beat till smooth and creamy. Add the egg followed by milk and grated carrots and mix well. Now add the flour gradually and mix till you get a smooth batter. Now fold in the fruit loops into the batter.
      Add a spoonful of batter into the muffin cups. Put some fruit loops on the top. Place them in a preheated oven at 180c. Bake for about 25 minutes. Insert a skewer in the center of a muffin to test if it is done.
Cool them well and serve.
Enjoy!!
