Aquafaba Vegan Carrot Cake Muffins - THE FIT MUM FORMULA

Aquafaba Vegan Carrot Cake Muffins

vegan carrot cake muffins

These vegan carrot cake muffins are nutritious and have all the flavours of traditional carrot cake, but with none of the refined sugar, and no animal products at all.


If you’ve not heard of aquafaba, it’s the liquid left after soaking legumes (usually chickpea aquafaba is used), like when you buy a tin of chickpeas and normally drain them? The liquid you chuck – that’s aquafaba and it’s actually quite clever in that it can bind and be whisked up like egg whites. You can even make meringues and vegan mousse!


So whether you’re cutting down on animal foods for environmental or ethical reasons, or you are allergic to dairy or eggs (vegan isn’t necessarily healthier so I’m not going to count that as a valid reason), give these vegan carrot cake muffins a go, plus you’ll have a load of chickpeas to use in a tasty recipe like my dessert hummus!

I have a free healthy baking cheat sheet that helps you recreate your own favourite baked treats using nutritious ingredients, you can grab it here!
