VEGAN CARROT CAKE (+ Superfood & 1 bowl recipe)

Ok, let's be honest... Is there any better smell than the one you get in your house from baking carrot cakes, carrot cake muffins, pumpkin spice goodies, and all those fall inspired dessert? I don't think either!

You will be glad to have made those just by the smell of it, and you'll be even more pleased once you've tasted these single-serving carrot cake!

This creation is the result you get when you want to eat a carrot cake, but also want it in a single serving, like the once you get with muffins. Simple; you just put your carrot cake batter in a muffin pan and there you go.

I must say that the fact this recipe will require you only one bowl, it's pretty fantastic. Who doesn't love to save dishes?

This cake recipe is like your normal carrot cake recipe, no fancy ingredients, except it is vegan and has a little twist; We've added maca powder to give extra nutrient and vitamins to every portion.

If you want to make this recipe to be sugar-free & gluten-free, feel free to swap some ingredients for others like almond flour & coconut sugar.

Let's jump into this recipe so you can enjoy these as soon as possible.
