These whole wheat carrot cake muffinsare probably your favorite muffins, ever but you don't know that yet.

Whats even better is that they’re vegan.

They are really moist, sweet but without much added sugar, and contain lots of nutritional power from the whole wheat pastry flour, walnuts, raisins, carrots, and applesauce.

These muffins stay true to their healthy promise, using unsweetened applesauce in place of the fat, minimal added sugar, and of course, eyesight-improving beta carotene thanks the orange veggie.

It’s all the flavors of the traditional, but in muffin form for 115 calories, making it all the more acceptable to have your cake and eat it too.

For a healthy breakfast, pair one of these muffins with something that has some protein and healthy fat, like a couple hard boiled eggs, a whole milk latte, or some Greek yogurt or cottage cheese.

Ingredients: (makes 12 muffins)


  • 1 & 1/2 C whole wheat pastry flour (not regular flour)
  • 1/2 C brown sugar
  • 1/4 C chopped walnuts
  • 1/4 C raisins
  • 2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. nutmeg
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp. salt


  • 1 & 1/2 C unsweetened applesauce
