Prep time: 15 minutes + 30 minutes cooking time

Makes: 12 serves


  • 2 large carrots (350g)

  • 8 scoops of Glucerna® powder

  • 200 ml water

  • 1 tablespoon oil

  • 1 medium onion, finely diced

  • 3 rashers (100 g) lean, short cut bacon, chopped

  • ¾ cup wholemeal self-raising flour

  • ¾ cup lentil flour

  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

  • 1 teaspoon bicarb soda

  • ½ teaspoon nutmeg

  • 1 cup grated reduced-fat tasty cheese

  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten

  • ½ cup natural Greek-style reduced-fat yogurt

  • 1/3 cup olive oil


  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C. Place muffin cases into muffin trays and spray lightly with oil.

  2. Chop the carrot into chunks and cook until soft (5 minutes in the microwave on high). Drain and mash with a fork and set aside.

  3. Combine Glucerna® and water in a medium bowl. Add eggs, yogurt, and oil and mix well. Set aside.

  4. Heat oil in a frypan. Cook onion and bacon until onion is soft.

  6. Add carrot and Glucerna® mixture to the dry ingredients. Stir gently until just combined.

  7. Spoon evenly into muffin cases and bake for around 30 minutes, or until a skewer comes out clean. After 5 minutes of cooling time in the tray, turn out onto a wire rack to cool.
