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**

When does the apple sauce go in?

Super yummy! Used buckwheat instead of whole wheat to make it gluten-free. Also definitely ate all of our dates before getting around to this recipe (oops!) but it was still very tasty. Would definitely recommend the raisins though if you don’t have the date paste. Thanks for the yummy muffin recipe.

Hey there! Do you know what flour I could use successfully instead of the wholewheat flour to do a gluten free version here? Thank you!

Greetings! Brittney, I didn't find the link to your date paste video instructions. I searched on your website and couldn't find it. Could you possibly link it for me please? Thank you!

id like to add some pineapple. Do you think it should replace some of the applesauce or just add it in separately? Thank you!
