These were lovely - I only had a quarter of a cup of maple syrup but they were still good. I wanted something for my 8 year old's lunchbox instead of choc chip bars or cookies, he does not like anything with raisins or nuts - so this was great.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large bowl, combine the first six ingredients. In another bowl, beat eggs, oil and syrup. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Fold in carrots. Fill greased or paper-lined muffin cups two-thirds full. Bake at 350° for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks.
  2. For frosting, combine cream cheese, butter, syrup and vanilla in a mixing bowl; beat until smooth. Frost cooled cupcakes. Sprinkle with nuts if desired.
