These 1 bowl healthy carrot cake muffins are sweet, and perfectly spiced! They are made in one bowl and are healthy enough to eat for breakfast all Easter long!
If Im going to be totally honest – carrot cake was never my absolute favourite. I know, this is shocking! You’d think I’d be all over it, since it’s a dessert with veggies in it. I think it was because I had only tried the store bought kind and of course, that stuff loaded with sugar! You almost can’t even detect any carrot shavings. You just have to trust they’re in there from the tiny specks of orange.
That being said, lately I’ve been thinking… carrot cake is basically a sweet, spiced cake with carrots and walnuts. So whats not to like? I was determined to create a carrot cake recipe that not only is super easy to make, but also has REAL wholesome ingredients! And of course, ALSO tastes delicious, without loads of sugar.
My taste buds have changed so much since cutting out white processed sugars. I really don’t like overly sweet desserts anymore, and I have found that making my own desserts and baked goods that are refined sugar free is a great option!
You’ll be going back for seconds, thirds and possibly fourths because these 1 bowl healthy carrot cake muffins are moist, sweet, and slightly spiced with the best crunchy sweet topping! This is exactly why I had to give the rest away to friends and coworkers. I cannot be trusted.

Have a wonderful Happy Easter weekend with your family and friends.

Super yummy! Love these
these look so good! i was wondering if i could sub maple syrup for coconut sugar?
Hi! Can i substitute oat flour instead of almond flour? Thanks!
I haven’t tried it myself but I’m sure that would work! Let us know how it turns out. 🙂
Do you think it would work if i submitted shredded apple instead of the Carrot? I have alot of apples to use up and love this recipe
I was wondering if you can use buckwheat flour instead of spelt flour?
p.s. I’m starting my own health blog and it would be awesome if you would check it out! 😉
TIA for the answer!
Hi Tjasa, I haven’t used buckwheat flour often in my baking so I can’t speak to that, but I often use brown rice flour or oat flour and they work well! I just checked out your blog, its so cute! Great food photography! 🙂
I don’t have spelt flour or almond flour. Can I use whole wheat pastry flour and how much?
You could probably sub for whole wheat but I haven’t tested the ratios. Maybe start with replacing 1:1 with the amount of flour I already suggested then see if you think you need to add more.
These healthy muffins can be transformed into carrot cake cupcakes with the simple addition of cream cheese frosting.
How I can to made a buttermilk but not with SoyMilk, because I don’t want to use it
You can use most nut or seed milks they just wont be as creamy 🙂
