Carrot cake, meet banana muffins…banana muffins, meet carrot cake!

What a lovely combination we’ve stumbled upon here!

I mentioned a few months ago I’ve been sweetening some of my treats using solely bananas, which is what is going on here. Look at these like healthy carrot cake cupcakes…or banana cupcakes…or healthy banana carrot muffins. 

Whatever you want to call them, they’re here for your snacking, breakfasting, desserting pleasure. 

All things considered, these muffins are grain-free, dairy-free, oil-free, contain zero added sweetener, are paleo-friendly and are absolutely delicious!

Paleo Carrot Cake Cupcakes sweetened with banana - grain-free, sugar-free, oil-free, dairy-free, and healthy

If you’d like, you can do as I did and frost the muffins using my Vegan Cream Cheese Frosting recipe. This gives the muffins a cupcake feel for a more decadent approach!

Do note, that the cream cheese frosting is sweetened with pure maple syrup, so you would need to skip the frosting to keep these sugar-free, or use sugar-free sweetener in the frosting.

Let’s get down to business!

Election Day.

Today is a nerve-wracking day for everyone. You may feel your fate lives outside of yourself. Is that really true?

Rather than allowing ourselves to get carried away with fear and anxiety, our energy is best served turning inward. 

What can I do to improve my well-being today?

Is there something I can do to help someone?

What is really, truly important when I zoom out?

A few simple questions and some deep breathing may be all it takes to bring ourselves back to peace and to recognize: life is a journey, and it doesn’t need to be controlled.

Surrender isn’t for the weak. It’s for the courageous. When we allow life to be as it is, we’re receptive to its lessons. If we try to resist, that which we resist persists.

So we can take a collective moment, you and me, to take a deep breath, exhale out our need for control, really take a look around and find something beautiful we can appreciate.

You are your own leader.

And streusel topping always improves a muffin. Always. That is a fact.

So if you’re game for another pumpkin treat, if you’re like me and you stress-bake-and-share, I’m here for you.

Let us bake.
