1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius.

3. In a large bowl, whisk together the banana, eggs, oil, milk, sugar and vanilla.
4. Sift flour and cinnamon over the banana mixture.  Add carrot and gently mix together.  Be careful not to mix too much or the muffins will be tough.
5. Spoon the mixture evenly among the paper cases.
6. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until muffins spring back when lightly touched.
7. Cool on a wire rack.

To make these muffins even more Easterish (I'm sure that's a word), we iced them with Cream Cheese Icing and used fruit stick lollies and mini marshallows to make carrot and flower decorations.
