Mini sugar-free carrot cakes

Updated: Apr 22

This is based on a simple Stephanie Alexander carrot cake recipe but I switched the sugar for dates and popped them in a mini muffin tin.

Add a cream cheese frosting to the top to make them extra jazzy but they're delicious and moist without it.


Ingredients

  • 2 carrots peeled and grated (approx. 2 cups)

  • 125g self-raising flour

  • 3/4 cup finely chopped dates

  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

  • 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg

  • 2/3 cup olive oil

  • 2 eggs

  • 60g finely chopped walnuts


Method

  1. Preheat fan forced oven to 170 degrees and grease a 24 mini muffin tin with olive oil spray

  2. Mix flour and spices. Add oil and eggs, and beat with an electric mixer or food processor for about 1 minute

  3. Stir in chopped dates, chopped walnuts and grated carrot

  4. Spoon into mini muffin tin and bake in the oven for about 18 minutes
