Whole Wheat Carrot Cake Muffins
I made these whole wheat carrot cake muffins. I decided on them because Noah had been begging me for carrot cake after seeing it on a show, and I had some buttermilk in the fridge to use up, so I was happy to find a recipe that could satisfy both of us. I used regular whole wheat flour instead of the whole wheat pastry flour, and regular brown sugar. I also increased the brown sugar to 1 cup (instead of 1/3). Noah eats a muffin for breakfast everyday, and again for dessert most days, so I try to stick to recipes like these that incorporate fresh fruits and veggies, whole grains, and have reduced fat/oil/butter. I thought these were great, sweet enough to seem like a dessert, but healthy enough to not be too indulgent. These would also be great with cream cheese frosting or a powdered sugar glaze for a slightly sweeter treat.
