Carrot Cake for Breakfast

I love carrot cake, but cake on a daily basis, especially first thing in the morning is often discouraged. Fortunately, I discovered a cake that came out healthy enough to eat for breakfast with a natural sweetness. I baked the cake in cupcake form so it's easy to grab and go. It is baked with whole wheat flour so it has enough fiber to fill you up and keep you going. Don't let the ingredient's fool you, this cake is moist, dense, and satisfying. If you have kids I'd suggest storing some separate. Because if you have a husband like mine, they're gone fast.

Wet Ingredients:

2 large eggs

1 cup greek yogurt

1/3 cup avocado oil

-Whisk together eggs for 10 seconds then add all wet ingredients- set aside

-In a separate bowl combine all dry ingredients mixing together to break down lumps

-Combine together wet and dry ingredients, mix only until combined

-Fold in carrots, walnuts, and coconut
