Gluten-Free Carrot Cake with Maple Cream Cheese Frosting

RECIPES, SPRING

Spring is in full bloom here, a delightful gift while we are kept at home. Here is another beloved recipe from my sister Kristen to brighten each of your homes right now. These images are nearly two years old, but the kids love joining in the baking. This is a great project to include your children!


I love sharing tasty and healthy alternatives to traditional, favorite desserts. I’ve experimented with a few different carrot cake recipes over the years, and I’ve landed with this favorite GF carrot cake. For those of you who are nervous about the bananas, you really cannot taste them. They keep the cupcakes moist and work together with the dates to lightly sweeten.

Without the frosting, I serve these as a healthy breakfast/snack muffin. Adding the naturally sweetened cream cheese frosting, it’s a dessert for the spring table that does not disappoint. You can also experiment with adding cinnamon or other spices to the frosting, too!
