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.
