Gut-Loving Carrot Cake Muffins

Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 35 minutes
Total time: 50 minutes
Course: Dessert
Diet: Paleo, Gluten-free, Grain-free, Refined Sugar-Free, and Dairy-Free
Servings: 6 large muffins



  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F. Grab your favorite large silicone muffin pan and coat it with oil.
  2. In your mixing bowl, start by whisking eggs. Then, add in the bananas and give them a little mash. Add coconut oil, vanilla extract, and cashew milk. With your hand mixer in hand, blend everything until you've got a velvety, creamy mixture.
  3. Toss in that grated carrot and stir it all up until it's evenly distributed throughout the batter. We're sneaking in some veggies because why not?
  4. Next, add all the dry ingredients. Mix everything until you have a thick, luscious batter.
  5. Spoon that glorious batter into your prepared silicone muffin pan, filling each cup about two-thirds of the way full.
  6. Pop those into the oven and bake for 30-35 minutes, or until the tops are golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  7. Resist the urge to dive in immediately (we know it's tough!). Let the muffins cool for 25 minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
  8. Enjoy your gut-loving carrot cake muffins. Grab one (or two, we won't judge), pour yourself a cup of tea or coffee, and enjoy every delicious, gut-loving bite!
