I've been wanting to make gluten free Carrot Cupcakes for a while now. When I think of spring, I think of carrot cake and when I think of picnics and potlucks I think of carrot cake cupcake yumminess.

I love these, but I am afraid I did make a wee change to it I only had 1 cup of almond flour so I made it up with flax meal, I also don't use agave so I sub it with a vanilla sugar free syrup, and I only had walnuts but all in all it turned out just fine, and I will make then again. Thank you for posting Made for Honor thy Mother. The diabetic forum May 2011.
