You are going to love these healthy and delicious Carrot Cake Muffins! My kids love muffins, so I wanted to create a recipe that didn’t include tons of sugar. Plus, it’s always a bonus when you can incorporate veggies into sweet treats…am I right?! These simple, healthy carrot cake muffins are packed with carrots, raisins and spices and free of refined sugars. You will love these deliciously moist muffins that are sweetened with pure maple syrup. Top them with a lightened-up cream cheese drizzle for a delicious breakfast, snack or healthy treat- or leave them as is- they are great either way!
