Joe Wicks breakfast muffins are packed with apple and carrot and just perfectly served warm as a morning treat.

Bake a batch of Joe Wicks breakfast muffins in just 25 minutes. Unlike our classic apple muffins, these are not just packed with apples but carrots, ground almonds, raisins, and mixed spice too. Topped with a light and fluffy vanilla cream cheese with a hint of honey, these breakfast muffins are moreish.


  • 2 medium carrots, grated (130g)
  • 2 medium eating apples, peeled and grated (170g)
  • 100g ground almonds
  • 60g raisins
  • 1½ tsp mixed spice
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 75g ricotta
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 125g cream cheese
  • 2 tsp honey




  1. For this Lean in 15 snack recipe preheat your oven to 180°C and line a 12-hole muffin tin with small muffin cases.
  2. Place all the ingredients apart from 1 teaspoon of the vanilla extract, the cream cheese and the honey in a large bowl and beat with a wooden spoon until fully combined.
  3. Divide the mixture equally among the muffin cases and slide into the oven. Bake the muffins for 25 minutes, by which time they will be cooked through and a little golden on the top. Leave to cool.
  4. While the muffins are cooling, whip together the remaining vanilla extract, cream cheese and honey, adding a splash of water to slacken if needed.
  5. When the muffins are totally cool, spread the cream cheese icing on top.
