Whole Wheat Carrot date muffins are simple carrot muffins with the healthy dates and whole wheat.  The dates give a lot of sweetness to the carrot muffins recipe. Therefore the recipe uses minimum refined sugar making it a healthier choice.

When you have a child who has a sweet tooth, like my Ladoo, you better learn healthy baking. This way you will avoid your child eating market baked goodies and save him from eating chemicals and preservatives.

Somehow Garv asks for some sweets after every mean. I ensure keeping some stock of healthier sweets at home to avoid him eating chocolates or candies.

|My Choice of Healthy Sweets:
Coffee Date Cake
Date Energy Balls
Date Syrup Quinoa Brownies

When I was making these date carrot muffin recipe, I wasn’t really sure about the outcome. The results got awarded when my husband, who does not like to eat sweets, ate two of these muffins.

The icing on the cake was the compliment on the perfect balance of sweetness in these moist carrot muffin recipe. And the secret is that I extracted most of the sweetness naturally from dates and carrot.

 

I have curated the list of recommended tools and ingredients for baking. I recommend only tried and tested products that have given satisfactory results in my kitchen.
