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!

- 1/4 Cup Coconut Sugar
- 4 Tbsp Flaxseed Flour
- 3 Tbsp Protein Powder (I used Vanilla Whey)

- 2 Tsp Cinnamon
- 1 Tsp Vanilla Extract

- 1/2 Tsp Baking Soda
- 2 Packets Stevia
- 3/4 Cup Greek Yogurt

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.
