As I have forgone all things animal for lent, I came up with this recipe as a treat. I love a classic carrot cake, but it is typically loaded with fat. This is a really delicious and healthy recipe! Enjoy and Eat On!

Yummy, I'll be making these again. I tossed together a little oatmeal crumble topping and was glad to have the added texture. They were nice and moist. I used traditional brown sugar instead of the splenda and perhaps this accounts for the fact that I wished they were a hint sweeter. (And I am not the type to want a sugary muffin.)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Douse a paper napkin with olive oil and wipe muffin tins to prevent sticking while baking.
  2. In a large bowl mix together flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and splenda.
  3. In a separate bowl whisk together banana, olive oil, milk and carrot.
  4. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix until just combined.
  5. Using a ¼ cup as a guide, divide the batter evenly among the 12 tins.
  6. Bake for 20 minutes. Indulge!
