Healthy Carrot Cake Muffins

Here is another one of my favourite muffins to make.

These muffins are made using almond and so are gluten free. They contain coconut oil and walnuts for a good dose of healthy fats as well and use the dates and a little honey to sweeten them up. These make a great healthy treat or are nutritious enough to have for breakfast! Enjoy x


1 ½ cups almond meal

½ tsp celtic sea salt

½ tsp baking powder

½ tsp cinnamon ground

3 eggs

2 tbsp coconut oil

¼ cup of honey

1 ½ cups grated carrot

½ cup chopped walnuts

5 dates, chopped

¼ cup shredded coconut


In a large bowl, combine the almond meal, salt, baking powder and cinnamon. In a separate bowl, mix together the oil, eggs and honey. Stir carrots, walnut, dates and coconut into the wet ingredients.  Stir wet ingredients into dry ingredients.  Scoop approximately ¼ cup sizes of the mixture into a muffin tin or cupcake papers. Bake for 20-22 mins at 180°. Makes 8-10 cupcakes

Mix together a combination of cream cheese, ricotta and honey for a cream cheese icing.
