Healthy Single-Serving Microwave Carrot Cake Muffin
Easter is coming up and no matter how many chocolate eggs, pastel-colored candies and bunnies I see, I always associate this holiday with carrot cake. I flash back to an Easter celebration party from when I was in elementary school. While all of the other kids were outside scavenging for hidden eggs, I was inside, first in line for a slice of carrot cake. First come, first serve! And I wanted that corner piece… you know, because it had the most frosting… ehem.
The second I got that cake I sat down at a table, scraped all of the frosting off the cake and ate the frosting by the spoonful. I didn’t care much for carrots as a kid (clearly), but I have grown to appreciate its flavor, its texture and its nutritional benefits. Similar to how I have grown to love dark chocolate 🙂
I made this carrot cake microwave muffin because Easter is just a few days away. Carrot cake has now been transformed into a healthy muffin that can be enjoyed for breakfast, a snack and a dessert! This carrot cake microwave muffin is simple, nutritious and takes only a few minutes to make and a few minutes to “bake.” Enjoy!
A perfectly balanced breakfast with healthy fats, complex carbohydrates, fiber, protein and no refined sugar! I love topping this muffin with pecan butter or almond butter to create a complete protein and a satisfying meal. Absolutely delicious.
You need to try this. Go grab some carrots!
