Vegan Carrot Cake Muffins

These babies are as guilt free as they come: egg free, dairy free, refined sugar free, gluten free, artificial sweetener free – but they pack a lot of flavor and do not taste like they are lacking all the good stuff! Feel free to make them your own by adding things like walnuts, protein powder, or other spices – they are a great base to build on! xo
