Serves: 36

Time: 30 minutes 


  • 1 1/2 cups white flour, sifted
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 1/2 cups grated carrots

  • 1/4 cup water
  • 3 tablespoons canola oil
  • 2 tablespoons ground flaxmeal
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 cup unsalted and roasted sunflower seeds



Preheat oven to 200°C and line a baking tray with baking paper. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg. In another bowl, whisk together yogurt, sugar, water, oil, flax and vanilla. Pour over flour mixture and stir to combine. Stir in carrots and seeds. Scoop dough in tablespoons onto baking tray.
