Skinny scan bran carrot cake muffins topped with lemon cheese cake cream

Hi all, I was inspired by one of my lovely members to make my version of scan bran carrot cake. I bloody love scan bran, it’s mega filling and fab for weight loss as it’s packed full of fibre.

Dinner was tex mex turkey chilli with cauliflower. The recipe is on another blog on here.

So here’s the muffins

Makes 6
Total time: Less than 30 mins
Syns per serving: 1 HEB and 2.5 syns for 2 muffins (1.25 each)
Or 13.5 syns for all 6 if not using them as a HEB


4 Scan Bran, crushed
1 Weetabix, crushed
150g grated carrot
½ tsp nutmeg
1 level tbsp runny honey
2 level tbsp mincemeat
3 beaten eggs

For the topping:
1 pot quark skimmed milk soft cheese
Lemon cheese cake essence or just lemon essence (cupcake world or tesco sell this)
Sweetener to taste

Tip: You can also make this as a single larger cake, which is gorge. I didn’t have a cake tin so made muffins.


Preheat oven to Gas Mark 4/180°C/160°C Fan.
Mix all the ingredients together.
Transfer the mix into a baking tin lined with non-stick baking parchment and bake for 20 minutes or a muffin tray sprayed with fry light.
When cooked leave to cool.

For the topping, mix the quark with lemon essence and sweetener to taste and spread onto the muffins once cooled.

Served with mixed berries for extra speed foods

Enjoy happy Fopping xx
