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.
