Easy Gluten Free Sugar Free Carrot Cake Cupcakes

Something magic happens when the moist, tender batter of carrot cake hits the oven. The house comes alive with the perfume of all of the warm spices, beckoning everyone to the kitchen in anticipation. Transformed into cupcakes, they’re the ultimate warm and cozy treat.

The Spice of Life

There is no missing any processed sugars with these cupcakes. Easy Gluten Free Sugar Free Carrot Cake Cupcakes pack a punch of flavor in every tender bite.

Whenever I am creating Dairy Free and Gluten Free recipes, I don’t want them to be just the best gluten or dairy free version, I want them to be a treat everyone will adore. The same hold true when I bake anything that is Sugar Free.

The key to the flavor and even part of the moisture of these sweet confections is D’Vash Organics Date Syrup. This even one to one sugar alternative is made from one single ingredient, dates. Low on the glycemic scale and with 25% less sugar than honey, date syrup also just tastes amazing. Unlike other sugar alternatives such as stevia, or artificial sweeteners, it has a natural sweetness.

While the date syrup provides the sweetness, a trio of aromatic spices deliver on the warmth. Cinnamon, cloves, and allspice perfume every bite. Walnut and raisins give these cute cupcakes a little texture and bite. I love using walnut oil in this recipe for even more depth, but you can substitute it with canola oil.
