Vegan Mini Carrot Cake Bundt Cakes

Spring is now here, and so it is the perfect time to make some carrot cake!  I love carrot cake because you can add veggies to your dessert!  I have an easy healthier recipe for you that is super delicious and even portioned out, since it is baked in mini bundt cake pans.  It happens to be gluten free, oil free, and fruit sweetened, but you would never know by tasting it because it tastes just as delicious as traditional carrot cake!  If you don’t have mini bundt pans, you can use muffin tins instead, you will just end up with more muffins then you will bundt cakes.
