Healthy Carrot and Date Muffins

November 26, 2017

The holiday season is officially here and that often means more celebrating (and more eating).  Although I completely think indulging is important, I also think it's important to have healthy options available. I mean who doesn't love a baked good....that's healthy?  


Today I enjoyed time decorating my home and spending time with loved ones. I also got to bake, which is one of my favourite things to do on a Sunday. Today I tested these delicious and nutritious carrot and date muffins (and I LOVED them). They are a great source of fibre, protein, and contain very little added sugar (4 grams in one muffin). See nutrition facts below. 


I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.



Makes 12 muffins




·       1 ½ cups whole wheat flour

·       2 tbsp. maple syrup

·       1 tsp. baking powder

·       1 tsp. baking soda

·       ¼ tsp. salt

·       2 tsp. cinnamon

·       2 eggs

·       ¼ cup vegetable oil

·       ½ cup plain Greek or Skyr yogurt

·       2 cups shredded carrots

Did you get some holiday decorating done this weekend? I love getting cozy on the couch with my lit tree and a freshly baked healthy treat. I hope you enjoy a cozy Sunday evening, doing whatever you love most. :)
