Carrot Cake (baked oatmeal) to go!

uhmmmmm…. so awesome. Like these are delicious and I’m addicted. Let’s just start there. I’ve been trying to behave during the week and not give into my sweet tooth… so healthy baking that seems like its cheating has come to my rescue.
 
So if you saw my live video yesterday you saw that I was baking with applesauce. ((Check it out on my facebook page if you haven’t!)) I like to use unsweetened applesauce from granny smith apples. Its a little sweet a little tart and lower in natural sugars than other applesauces.
 
Anyways I was at a local bakery and REALLY wanted some carrot cake. I had made some oatmeal cups from zucchini & banana last week and it inspired me to see what I could do to make a healthy spin on carrot cake with the same type of baked oatmeal cups. They aren’t even bad for you. Now… that doesn’t mean you can eat the whole batch but 2 is a serving just like I’d eat a bowl of oatmeal and its lightly sweetened so you don’t have to fear on the sugar either.
