Healthy Carrot Cake Muffins (Easy)

Updated: Jun 30, 2020

Who else is ready for spring? I totally am!

One of the things I love about spring time and the Easter season is carrot cake!

Carrot cake is one of my all favorites of all the cakes. However the carrot cake I grew up with wasn't healthy in the slightest despite 'carrot' being in the title.

I've come up with a delicious yet healthy recipe that you can enjoy for breakfast, as a traveling snack, or even dessert.

Plus you can add in the optional ingredients making our carrot cake muffins always interesting.

**This recipe below is correct, I said the wrong amount of whole wheat flour in the video**
