Healthiest Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting

Please follow and like us:

My Birthday was on January 14th and I was determined to give myself a delicious but HEALTHY cake without all the butter, sugar and oils. I wanted it to be moist and decadent but not break my diet.

This Carrot Cake exceeded all of my expectations! I still can’t believe I came up with such perfection on the first try!


I get most of my ingredients from vitacost.com. You can get whole food ingredients on your doorstep THE NEXT DAY for much cheaper than any grocery store.

 

 

 

 

 

Recipe:

  • 1 Cup Grated Carrots (raw)
  • 1/2 Cup Almond Flour
  • 1/4 Cup Coconut Sugar
  • 4 Tbsp Flaxseed Flour
  • 3 Tbsp Protein Powder (I used Vanilla Whey)
  • 2 Whole Eggs 3 Eggs Whites
  • 2 Tsp Cinnamon
  • 1 Tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1/2 Tsp Baking Powder
  • 1/2 Tsp Baking Soda
  • 2 Packets Stevia

FROSTING:

  • 3/4 Cup Greek Yogurt
  • 3 oz Low Fat or Fat Free Cream Cheese
  • 1 Scoop Vanilla Whey Protein Powder

TOPPING: Chocolate Curls. Use a peeler on a dark chocolate bar to create tiny chocolate curls.

Pre-heat oven to 325f. Mix all dry ingredients together and set aside. Mix all wet ingredients plus carrots in a mixer and then add the dry ingredients. Pour batter into a greased 8inch round pan and bake for 26-28 minutes. Once cooled, cut in half and use 1/4 of the frosting for the middle layer. Put the cake back together and frost entirely. Sprinkle with chocolate curls.
