Prep Time: 5 minutes

Bake Time: 15-20 minutes 

Yield: 9-10 medium cupcakes




  • 1 ripe banana
  • 1/2 cup Greek or coconut yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 egg (or substitute for a vegan option, ex: 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce)
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 cup coconut flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon coconut sugar (optional, adjust to taste)
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1 cup grated carrot


  • Whipped cream cheese (or whipped coconut cream for vegan option)
  • 1 tablespoon coconut sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Tiny pieces of ground walnuts for decoration



Create the Batter:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).
  2. In a mixing bowl, mash the ripe banana. Add yogurt, vanilla extract, and egg (or egg substitute). Mix well.
  3. Combine dry ingredients, in a separate bowl, whisk together cinnamon, coconut flour, baking powder, and coconut sugar (if the banana is ripe, coconut sugar is optional for added sweetness. The banana's natural sweetness might be enough, allowing you to skip the extra sugar for naturally sweetened muffins.)
  4. Combine wet and dry Ingredients adding the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, stirring until well combined.
  5. Fold in the grated carrots and chopped walnuts into the batter.


Bake Muffins:

  1. Spoon the batter into cupcake molds.
  2. Bake in a preheated oven at 350°F for 15-20 minutes. To check for doneness at the 15-minute mark, insert a toothpick into the center – the cupcakes are ready if it comes out clean or with just a few moist crumbs.


Prepare Frosting:

  1. While the cupcakes are baking, prepare the frosting.
  2. In a bowl, whip cream cheese (or whipped coconut cream for a vegan option).
  3. Add a tablespoon of coconut sugar and vanilla extract. Mix until smooth.



  1. Once the cupcakes have cooled, spread the frosting over the top.
  2. Decorate with tiny pieces of ground walnuts.


Serve and enjoy your delicious a moist sugar-free carrot cupcakes!

Feel free to get creative with the decorations or even add other ingredients like raisins or shredded coconut to enhance the flavor.

Happy baking!
