Check out all of the yummy raisins, dates and nuts poking out to say "hello!" Oh yeah, had to have a few Easter eggs for garnish.
- 2 cups grated organic carrots (apx 3 medium)
Mix all dry ingredients in large bowl. Add remaining ingredients and stir until combined. Place in muffin or cupcake liner almost to the top (these don’t rise very much). Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes.
Yield: 12 muffins or cupcakes

Love how the photography captured these carrots?
Now a little health trivia:
Did you know that organic carrots are alkaline forming in your body but conventional carrots are acid forming? Didn’t know this until recently reading a great book by Dr. Susan Brown called The Acid-Alkaline Food Guide: A Quick Reference to Foods & Their Effect on pH Levels . She describes how the soil content and toxins in nonorganic soils actually pull vitamins and minerals from the vegetables so they are no longer healthy for the body. You want alkaline forming fruits and veges in your body to balance out your PH levels. SO interesting.
So enjoy your carrot cake and have a Happy, Hopping Easter!Deviled Eggs Apple Walnut Bread - gluten free and sugar free Christmas Cookie Recipe Swap - Healthy recipes for cookies
