This recipe is from nutritionist Zonya Foco, I love anything she comes up with. The original recipe makes a carrot cake that is frosted with a light cream cheese frosting. I discovered my kids love this cake as muffins, without any frosting, (If you want to make the cake, just bake it at 350°F in a 9x13 pan, about 28-30 minutes.) I always use a 1/2 and 1/2 mix of whole wheat flour and white flour instead of whole wheat pastry flour.
