1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 c Unsweetened Applesauce
1/4 c honey

1 cup grated carrots
1 tbsp unsalted butter

Recipe Directions for Carrot Cupcakes

  1. Pre-heat your oven to 350 F and line cupcake pan with 24 mini paper baking cups.

  2. Sift together all of the dry ingredients and set aside.

  3. Mix together the applesauce and honey using a stand mixer on medium speed. Beat eggs, and add them to mixer on low speed.
