Carrot Cake Banana Muffins with Maple Cinnamon Glaze {gluten free + vegan}

I decided on a whim to make muffins for Easter. Last year, I adapted a recipe for carrot cake muffins that worked out really well for us. They had a dairy-free cream cheese frosting and cute little Easter embellishments. This year I wanted to do something slightly different, so I recreated that recipe with a little bit of a twist!

Carrot Cake Banana Muffins with Maple Cinnamon Glaze {gluten free + vegan}


  • 1 very ripe banana, mashed                                                         
  • 1 cup grated carrots
  • 1/2 cup real maple syrup
  • 2 Tbsp plain dairy-free sour cream, softened
  • 1 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla 
  • 1 1/2 cups gluten free all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp xanthan gum 
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare a 12-cup muffin pan with paper liners; set aside. 

In a large mixing bowl, mash the bananas. Add the carrots, maple syrup, dairy-free sour cream, apple cider vinegar and vanilla. Mix until combined. 

In a medium bowl, whisk together all of the remaining ingredients. While mixing on low, gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients. Continue mixing on medium speed until just combined. (Do not over mix or your muffins may become chewy.) 

Scoop the batter into the muffin cups, filling them two-thirds full. Bake at 350 degrees for 18 minutes. 

Allow to cool completely, then top with glaze before serving. 

Glaze:


  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/2 tsp maple extract
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 2-4 Tbsp dairy-free milk 

Combine all ingredients except the milk in a small bowl. Add milk one tablespoon at a time until the mixture reaches the consistency of a thick glaze. Drizzle glaze over cooled muffins and serve.
