Easy & Healthy Carrot Cake Recipe

Good morning guys and happy Friday! How are you all doing on this fine autumn and crisp day?

We wanted to share this super duper easy carrot cake muffins recipe. It tastes SO good, it naturally sweetened with apples and maple syrup and is so easy to carry around if you would want it as a snack at school or work. Plus it has a delicious cream cheese frosting that gives it that extra good taste we all love – the healthy way of course.

Each muffin contains 115 calories as opposed to 345 calories in a chocolate muffin bought in store! Crazy right? I’m not going to lie, I am enjoying one right now as I am writing this blog post! #Guilty
