Paleo Carrot Cake Banana Muffins (No Added Sweetener!)

Paleo Carrot Cake Banana Muffins made grain-free, oil-free, dairy-free with no added sugar! These healthy carrot banana muffins are studded with raisins and pecans for a perfectly sweet, texturally pleasing nutritious snack.

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!

7-Layer Paleo Magic Bars

7-Layer Paleo Magic Bars include seven layers of bliss! A grain-free version of classic magic bars, these easy to assemble bars are great for entertaining guests any time of year, and are magnificent for holiday cookie exchanges.

Seven Layer Magic Bars are a MUST in my family around the holidays. My mom has made them every single year since I can remember.

If you’ve never had a 7-layer bar (a.k.a. Magic bar), you’re in for a real treat! They are exactly how they sound – Seven layers of actual bliss. Traditionally, magic bars are made with a graham cracker crust, condensed milk, chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, walnuts, and sweetened coconut.

We’re taking the same concept, but cleaning it up a tad. Just enough to make you feel like they’re “healthy…” which makes them extra dangerous, muuuuhahaha!

Anyhoo.

I have to admit, these Paleo Magic Bars require more actual work than I usually put in to desserts, but they are so, so worth it!

The process itself is simple: you’re just creating multiple delicious layers to form a multi-layer bar o’ bliss. We have a crust layer, a layer of chocolate ganache, chopped walnuts, maple tahini, caramel, shredded coconut, and chocolate chips. In that order 😉

Who here loves carrot cake??

I, for one, can get on board with carrot cake everything.
