Healthy Coconut Carrot Cake with Buttercream Frosting

Healthy Coconut Carrot Cake with Buttercream Frosting

The best healthy carrot cake you will ever try! This moist cake has just the right amount of spice and topped with perfectly rich buttercream frosting and for an added bonus, this cake is made gluten-free and high in protein–double win!


I wanted to start off this post by saying that carrot cake is my favorite flavor of cake but that’s just not true. I feel like I say that about all cakes because I just love cake so much that in the moment I really do believe that it’s my favorite. The truth is, I love them all the same! Just give me cake and I will love it as much as the last slice. <3

I used PEScience Select Protein in this recipe. For this recipe I used Gourmet Vanilla but I’ve also used their Snickerdoodle flavor in many carrot cake recipes and it tastes amazing as well.

Healthy Coconut Carrot Cake with Buttercream Frosting

The best ever healthy coconut carrot cake with keto buttercream frosting. This cake is made gluten-free and high in protein.

Ingredients

    Carrot Cake
  • 1 1/2 c peeled & grated carrots
  • 1 1/2 c gluten-free oat flour
  • 64g vanilla protein powder pescience 30% off code PBCHOCO
  • 3/4 c unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/3 c unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1/4 c + 1 tbsp coconut oil, melted
  • 3 eggs, large
  • 1/3 c egg whites
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • pinch sea salt

Instructions

  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 F and prepare three 6-inch round pans with non-stick spray and set aside.
  2. Place the eggs, egg whites, milk and grated carrots into a stand alone mixer or in a large bowl and using a hand held mixer, beat until fluffy. About 20-30 seconds. Add in the melted oil and vanilla and continue mixing until incorporated. Add in the remaining dry ingredients and continue mixing until a batter forms. Distribute the batter between the three pans. Bake for 16-18 minutes. Let cakes cool completely. Use a knife to level the cakes if they come out too round. I like to let mine cool upside down and that usually levels them off pretty well.
  3. Prepare your frosting by placing the butter into a mixer. Beat the butter until creamy. Add in the vanilla and powdered erythritol and mix until incorporated. Add in the protein 1 scoop at a time (about 32g) until you reach your desired consistency. The frosting should be stable enough to keep shape.
  4. Place the cakes on a serving tray and place a nice thick glob of frosting between each cake layer. Then frost the rest of the cake however you like. I'm terrible at frosting cakes so I opted for the "barely frosted" rustic look. Then I topped mine with crushed nuts and thyme for esthetic reasons. 🙂 Enjoy!

Healthy Triple Peanut Butter Cake

Healthy Triple Peanut Butter Cake

I just wish everyday could be Sunday. It’s always so peaceful–a perfect day for baking and lounging around and eating what you’ve baked. I’ve probably done more of the lounging around and eating part.

 

My boyfriend often asks me if I get sick of always making peanut butter flavored desserts and I reply with “What are you crazy man? Peanut Butter is life!” And then I don’t talk to him for the rest of the day! He clearly doesn’t know me at all. I never get sick of peanut butter. 😛


 

To show my boyfriend how not sick of peanut butter I am, I made a Triple Peanut Butter Cake using the Peanut Butter Frosting I posted yesterday.

 

 

Peanut butter cake layered with peanut butter Greek yogurt frosting and then topped with more frosting and peanut butter and chocolate chips.

 

I used PEScience Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup protein powder. You can get 30% OFF using code PBCHOCO at checkout on their website.
