3/4 baking soda
1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt
3/4 cup Alfa One rice bran oil
1/3 cup caster sugar
1 1/4 cups finely grated carrots (I use carrot pulp after I’ve made juice and they still turn out fine)
1/2 cup each of canned crushed pineapple (semi-drained) and raisins.
Pre heat oven to 180 degrees.
Line a 12 hole muffin tray.
Sift flours, baking powder, soda, cinnamon and salt in a bowl and mix well.
Beat oil, sugar and eggs until blended. Add carrots, pineapple and raisins.
Gradually add the flour mixture mixing enough until just combined.
