I'm a sucker for muffins. Give me a cup of coffee and a couple muffins and I'll love you forever. You wanna know something else I love? Carrot Cake. Oh yeah, like a lot. You wanna know something else I love? Oh, come on, just pretend you do. I know you really don't give a shit. The answer is... I love QUICK AND EASY! 

There's two things that I can guarantee that I am at ALL times:

  1. Hungry
  2. Busy

I love when I can whip up some healthy food in just a few minutes. Ain't nobody got time for camping out in the kitchen. This microwave carrot cake muffin is a wonderful healthy breakfast! (Or lunch or snack or, okay I'll admit it, I've even had them for supper). They're made of wholesome ingredients, only 150 calories, and pack a protein punch. Good stuff, man.

So before I give you the recipe let me explain something. This muffin is NOT going to taste like a two-story carrot cake with mounds of cream cheese frosting on it. I mean, I would imagine you already knew that but I just wanted to remind you that this is a muffin we're talking about. And although this muffin is pretty sizable (I cut mine in half to make two), it's not the same size as those gargantuan ones you get at the bakery that are 1,200 calories each. However, this muffin is still fabulous and it has that 'carb-y' taste that we all crave and love, yet the ingredients are healthy and nourishing. 

Do I love this carrot cake muffin? YES! Do I love this carrot cake muffin as much as a piece of carrot cake? Uh, hell no. But I'll take what I can get!

BTW, this is only 1/2 of your muffin! They turn out so big that you're able to cut it in half and it's like having two muffins. Hell, you could actually have two muffins, which would really be like the size of FOUR muffins, for only 300 calories! SCORE!

These muffins are good without any topping, but I usually do top mine. My favorite topping is cream cheese, but sometimes I'll top it with all-natural peanut butter. I also love it topped with a drizzle of honey. You can come up with all kinds of ways to top your muffins. Sometimes I'm in the mood to just have them plain with a tiny bit of butter (a small pat of butter is only 25 calories).

Are you ready to try these babies out for yourself? I think you are.

3 MINUTE CARROT CAKE MUFFIN

Makes 1 Muffin

Printable Recipe

WHATCHU NEED:

  • 1/4c Traditional Oats, pulverized.
  • 6 Baby Carrots
  • 2 Egg Whites
  • 2 tsp Honey
  • 1 tsp Ceylon Cinnamon or Regular Ground Cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1-2 Stevia Packets (Optional)
  • Coconut Oil or Cooking Spray
  • 1 Coffee Mug
  • 1 Sandwich Baggie (If greasing your mug with coconut oil.)

 

Note:

I have a crazy sweet tooth so I add one or two stevia packets to my recipe. This is purely optional. The muffin has a nice hint of sweetness without the stevia because of the honey.

WHATCHU DO:

1. Pulverize your oats and baby carrots in a blender or food processor until they look like coarse flour.

2. Put oats and carrots in a small bowl and mix in the egg whites, honey, cinnamon, baking soda, and stevia.

3. Grease your coffee mug. I grease mine with coconut oil, but you can also use cooking spray.

Note:

To grease my mug, I put my hand in a sandwich baggie and scoop up a small dollop of coconut oil. Then I smear it all over the inside of the mug.

4. Pour carrot mixture into greased mug.

5. Microwave for 2 1/2 - 3 minutes. (Each microwave cooks slightly different.)

Note:

Once cooked, the muffin will very nicely pull away from the sides of the mug. Tip the mug over and it'll fall right out!

Look how big! 

YUM!

6. Cut your muffin in half and top if desired. 

TOPPING SUGGESTIONS:

HONEY

BUTTER

CREAM CHEESE

This is my favorite way to eat them! My second favorite way is to simply drizzle a little honey on them.

PEANUT BUTTER

PEANUT BUTTER WITH WALNUTS

*Affiliate Disclaimer: Half of Gabby has recently become an Amazon Affiliate. The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) requires all affiliates to put a disclaimer on their website/blog. Most disclaimers are so filled with confusing lingo that you don’t even understand what they're saying. I’m going to break it down for you the way I'd want it to be broken down for me. I’m not a fan of complicated and unclear regulation jargon. So here’s the dealio. Half of Gabby takes up a tremendous amount of my time. But because I love it so much, I really want to continue dedicating my time to it. For six years now, I have been providing product links to products that I use and love and in turn recommend them to my readers. These products have helped me maintain a healthy lifestyle and/or improve my family life. I have helped sell countless products for six years and have never received any commissions… Until now. As of September 15, 2016, I will be providing links just as I've always done, but now will receive a very small commission if you purchase an item through the affiliate link that I provide. An affiliate link is simply a link that brings you to a place where you can buy that product. I will not earn a commission by you simply clicking on the link, you must actually purchase the item(s) within 24 hours of putting it in your Amazon cart. Prices are exactly the same for you if you purchase through an affiliate link on Half of Gabby. You will NOT pay more by clicking through the link. My promise to you is that I will never recommend a product that I don’t fully 100% believe in and/or use myself and recommend to close friends and family. This will allow me to continue working hard on Half of Gabby without it using up time that I need to otherwise dedicate to contributing to my household. I'm happy to be able to continue my blog and to continue talking with, meeting, and helping people all over the world with their health journeys!
