Carrot cake muffins from HEAVEN (108 calorie heaven)

I feel like the only thing I keep sharing with you lately are muffin recipes, but I can't help but share this new one I tried tonight. These are so good you would think they were a guilty pleasure but there is absolutely zero guilt in these 108 calorie muffins. 

Whole Wheat Carrot Cake Muffins 

1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour 
1/2 cup coconut sugar (you can use brown) 
1/4 cup chopped pecans or walnuts
1/4 cup craisins or raisins 
2 tsp cinnamon 
1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice 
1/2 tsp ginger 
1 tsp baking powder 
1 tsp baking soda 
1/4 tsp salt 
1 1/2 cups unsweetened natural applesauce 
1 cup shredded carrot 
1 tsp vanilla 

Makes 12 muffins (108 calories each WHAT WHAT) 
Bake at 350 for 20 min 

NO OIL, NO EGGS, NO DAIRY? How can these be good? I was worried they would have a weird texture or taste grossly healthy but they may be my favorite muffin of all time! 

Just a few things to share on my progress for those of you who may not follow my instagram- I have already lost 14 pounds! SAY WHAT? 

Ive been measuring my baby belly area and so far I have lost 3 inches in my belly and hips. If you are struggling with weight loss and need motivation my two biggest helpers have been Instagram and My Fitness Pal. These apps help me log everything I eat and get ideas for other healthy foods. Keeping motivated is the hardest part of making healthy a lifestyle- so hopefully I can keep this habit going.

  1. Hey Johanna! How are you, girl? I just wanted to leave a comment today to say how happy I was to stumble across your blog today! You've got a beautiful corner of the blog-o-sphere here and I love what you're doing. Inspiration, motivation, dedication! So I wanted to reach out to you because it is my goal this year to help as many people as I possibly can to get healthy and fit and realize their true potential.

    I am hosting a few workshops this month all about nutrition and fitness and I thought maybe this is something you would be interested in doing. I work with people every day who have goals to really take control of their health and even to take their fitness goals to the next level and I realized that you just never know who those people are until you talk to them. So as a part of a special project I am focusing on this year, I am reaching out to as many people as I can because I want everyone to have the opportunity to change their life from the inside out, and I didn't want you to miss out!

    I'd love to talk to chat with you!

    Much Love sister!
