Whole Wheat Carrot Muffins with Maple-Brown Sugar Cream Cheese Glaze

Whole Wheat Carrot Muffins with Maple-Brown Sugar Cream Cheese Glaze

Hopefully you haven’t had enough of carrot cake inspired treats yet because I’ve got a gooder for you today. I shared this healthy yet decadent muffin on Simple as That over Easter weekend.

Are you familiar with Rebecca of Simple as That? If not, you should be. She is great at capturing the beauty of life in the simple everyday things. She takes beautiful photos, creates simple crafts ideas and projects, is giving continual advice on how to capture family life through a lens, and provides inspiring printables, and scrapbooking inspiration. Seriously, you need to check out her site if you haven’t already.

Here’s a bit about the muffin recipe from the post:

“The base is fluffy and light, more the texture of a cupcake than a muffin, even though they are 100% whole wheat. And, rather than a thick layer of frosting, the tops are dipped in a sticky cream cheese glaze sweetened with brown sugar and maple. They are just decadent enough to feel like a treat while still being healthy enough to enjoy for breakfast.”

Get the recipe on Simple as That.

    Saw your recipe on Simple As That and wanted to say what a great recipe it looks like. I love carrot cake, but it’s definitely something I can’t make on a regular basis. These muffins might just change that. Thanks!
