    When I saw this on Twitter, the short link looked like ‘goo goo’ which had me intrigued:) Then I read about your GF baking class, which I taught last Saturday as well! Our Whole Foods has a culinary center which makes for a built-in clientele. I used some of your recent GF flour tips and referred the class to your site.
    This recipe looks great. I might sub the grated carrots for carrot pulp, which I use after I juice. Here’s a similar post I did about it:

    @Karen@Cook4Seasons, I hope your class went well – it sounds like it did. :) Thanks so much for sending your students my way and for the tip about carrot pulp.

    Oops – I just realized the muffin recipe I sent isn’t gluten free (I obviously didn’t use that in my class;-) The idea was to suggest a way to use the carrot pulp…

    Amy! I knew that you would be amazing =D. These look awesome, and I’m thrilled your class was a hit – maybe one day I’ll come to one (because they’re obviously going to be a regular thing!).

    What a great suggestion for a cold, rainy day – and all the ingredients are on hand! There is nothing like baking to warm up the house and make it smell good! Thanks for posting this today.

    These look so moist and tender, I’d never guess they were so lean! Yummy ingredients too. As soon as I restock on the agave, I’m making these. I wish I could take your class, sounds fun–except I’d want to “sample” everything :D .

    I love carrot cake/cupcakes and a healthier version is better.

    I know how busy you are so please just drop by Comfy Cook and pick up an award. You don’t have to do anything with it unless you want to. Just want to say, “thanks”.

    Hi Amy,

    I am new to gluten-free baking and was thrilled to find and then try your recipe so my in-laws and I (we’re all eating gluten-free) could have something fun to eat at my husband’s birthday. They were delicious, unlike some of the recipes I’ve tried so far. Thank you, thank you. It is great to know that with a little effort I don’t have to give up on having yummy desserts once in a while!

    By the way, my mother and father in law both loved the cupcakes too and they had them without the frosting. They are full of flavor and would indeed make a yummy breakfast, although I would add in some extra protein (chicken apple sausage and kale?) for anyone who is diabetic or hypoglycemic to balance out the carbs. A great recipe for the sausage and kale can be found at http://midnightmommies.com/a-recipe-for-yummy-health. My nutritionist, who is absolutely wonderful, gave it to me.

    Thanks again, Amy!

    @Suzanne Murray, This is one of our favorite cupcake recipes – I’ve used them in my cooking classes and they’re always a big hit. I’m glad that you like them, too. Thanks for sharing a great recipe. Hugs!

    I’ve made this several time now. Works great as a cake too -in a 9 in springform pan with parchment paper at the bottom/ with maple syrup instead of agave nectar (same amount)/ and with extra spices (1 tbsp ground cinnamon + 1 tsp ground ginger).
    Excellent gluten free recipe, thanks for sharing.

    @cat, Great, Cat! I get so many people asking if I’ve made this into a cake and I haven’t. Now I can tell them you have. :)

    Oh! And I forgot, I also sometime replace the orange juice with 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar and 1 tbsp water when I don’t have orange juice on hand and it works great too.

    I am 20 years old and I was diagnosed with Crohns disease about a month ago, and have a gallbladder that doesn’t work so well so sugar and gluten have always been an enemy. I can’t go to the cute cupcake shops and enjoy yummy cupcakes like all my friends so THANK YOU for this amazing recipe! I just made them for my family and I and they were a huge hit! I like them better than normal cupcakes! So moist and delicious! Thank you thank you thank you!

    Love,
    Lauren

    Ps. I just ordered your cookbook and it should be here soon because every Barnes and Noble in Oklahoma was sold out!

    These look pretty good- have you tried making them with an egg substitute, to make them vegan? I might give that a try, using ground flax seeds and water. I’m just unsure if the fat proteins in the eggs are needed for ‘structure’.

    @Rob, GIve it a try and let me know what happens!
