Carrot Cake Muffins

Looking for a delicious breakfast (or snack or dessert) that is tasty, but also fills you up and is perfect to take on the go?  These little bites are the PERFECT solution.  My clients often share how challenging it is to make healthy work when they travel so often - but I travel too! And that's exactly why I made these today... I'm traveling to Chicago this week and wanted to have something for the road, but also during the week for snacks during my conferences.

Little to no added sugar.
