 Preheat oven to 350°F. Coat muffin tin or 9-inch cake pan with cooking spray, I prefer and use olive oil spray. Mash thawed banana in large bowl. Whisk in agave, oil, carrots, zucchini. Whisk together flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and nutmeg in separate bowl. Stir flour mixture into banana mixture, until no lumps remain.
Pour cake batter into prepared muffin tin or baking pan. Bake muffins 18-24 minutes , until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes in pan. Transfer to wire rack, and cool completely. Keep in mind that oven temps range and you may need more or less time depending on how hot your oven gets. If it needs more or less time feel free to adjust it accordingly.

Whip vegan cream cheese, and agave with fork in bowl until smooth. Dollop 1 tsp. Topping onto each cupcake.
