Carrot Cake With Chocolate Ganache

As the snow moves in and the cold returns in Park City, one of my favorite past-times is cozying up with a good book and experimenting with healthy recipes that satisfy my chocolate cravings. 

Chocolate is edible happiness, so I was thrilled when Michele from @healthytablebyus created this Decadent Carrot Cake with Chocolate Ganache recipe.

Carrot cake is typically paired with cream cheese frosting, so the chocolate ganache is a pleasant change.  Not only does it makes the muffin lighter, but it also helps balance the sweetness of the cake.

70g gluten-free oatmeal + 10g to grease
