Crackin Carrot Cake 

  

I had such a craving for carrot cake today! I thought of it all day! I came so close to buying a nasty generic piece of carrot cake at the grocery store, but I resisted! So I literally through this together and it’s perfect! Just perfect! 

1 cup coconut sugar 

1 cup coconut oil 

1/2 cup maple syrup 

3 eggs 

2 tablespoons vanilla 

1/2 cup almond milk 

2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar 

1/2 cup carrot purée 

1 cup ottos cassava flour 

1 cup sweet potato flour 

3 tablespoons ground flaxseeds 

1 tablespoon cinnamon 

1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder 

1 teaspoons baking soda 

1/2 teaspoon sea salt 

2 cups shredded carrots 

1/2 cup shredded coconut 

1/2 cup natural white chocolate chips (optional) 

  • In your mixer cream the coconut sugar and coconut oil. 
  • Add the maple syrup and eggs one at a time. 
  • Turn off mixer and add the almond milk and apple cider. 
  • In a separate bowl mix all of the dry ingredients. 
  • Turn the mixer on low and add the dry ingredients followed by the shredded carrots, carrot purée, coconut and white chocolate chips. 
  • Bake in a 350 degree oven until center is firm and toothpick comes out clean.  Allow to cool.
