"Easy A" Breakfast Carrot Cake or Muffins
vegan, makes 15 muffins, 1 loaf or 1 sheet cake

3/4 cup carrot juice
1 box Carrot Muffin Mix (I used DrOetker organic)
*see box-free subs below
1 1/2 Tbsp baking powder
2 Tbsp maple syrup
1/4 cup spelt flour (or alt. flour)
1 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp cayenne
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup apple sauce
2 Tbsp virgin coconut oil (or alt. veg oil)
Fold in:
1 large ripe peach, diced
1 cup raw pecan, roughly chopped
Topping:
1 Tbsp sugar + 1/4 cup oats

Box Sub: 3 cups of flour, 1/2 cup of sugar, 2 tsp baking powder, dash salt, 1/4 cup canned pumpkin (op'tl) - then simply use all the above ingredients as indicated. Up the spices for a bolder flavor.

Directions:

1) Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

2. Combine muffin mix (or box sub ingredients shown above), juice, apple sauce, baking powder, spices, maple syrup, oil, salt and flour in a large mixing bowl. Stir well.

3. Fold in the chopped raw peaches and pecans.

4. Layer parchment paper on a thin cake baking sheet, or loaf pan. You can also make muffins. I used about a 8"x14" tray - 1 1/2" tall. Pour the batter into your cooking dish. Spread evenly. Sprinkle the oats/sugar mixture over top.

5. Bake for 11-14 minutes (for sheet cake) or until cake is browned on top and not soggy in center. Baking time will vary by what you make. A loaf will take about 30 minutes while the thin sheet cake I made took only about 12 minutes.

6. Remove from oven and allow to cool before slicing - the moist cake needs time to harden/cool a tad before serving.

Serve!

*Store on counter for no more than a few days - or freeze. You can fridge as well, but I prefer the freezer for longer-term storage.
