Healthy carrot muffins recipe


Sometimes is just impossible to find a dessert that is healthy, sugar-free, tasty and especially you can enjoy it without regrets. Well, not everyone is taking sugar things too seriously as I take, but my slow metabolism makes me gain weight even from the air … Seriously, I am one of those who are jealous of those people who are eating a lot and still looking the same or skinny. 

Not a big deal at all, but if I can cut some extra calories and enjoy the dessert, I am more than happy to try it. This recipe is perfect! It’s a healthier option of classic carrot cake but it’s sugar-free. Also, you should try a healthy carrot cake recipe or 

Oh yes! I need to share my last recipe because I think it’s just a perfect treat and even when this is not a traditional carrot cake with frosting I am sure it will find the way to people. It’s fluffy with a good moist and delicious.

As part of my meal prep, I decided to make some muffins and keep one or two in my bag, so it’s also a perfect snack on the go.

The classic carrot cake recipe

I am sure you will agree If I say that whoever invited the carrot cake was such a genius! Well, the first publications about this dessert are from 1514 and people believe that the carrot was actually used as a substitute for sugar (so clever)! The traditional carrot cake was made only by adding carrots and some raisins.

The modern version of carrot cake is a little bit more “naughty” and can be served with extra cream cheese frosting or buttercream.

Grated carrots: Better to use freshly grated and organic carrots as it will make a big difference in the taste and moisture. You can always use the food processor for grating but I used my hands and box grater. 

Wholemeal flour: I used wholemeal flour but I am sure any kind of lour would be fine.

Baking powder: Make the cake fluffy

Cinnamon: For better taste

Sweetener: Feel free to use stevia or any alcohol sweetener as Xylitol

Eggs: It’s a cake …. so ( just thinking that maybe flaxseeds would be working too, but I didn’t try it)

Cashew milk: Use any kind of milk. I drink only no-dairy milk, but it can make a different taste

Oil: I used sunflowers oil

Raisins and pear: Some extra sweet taste
