Sugar-Free Carrot Cake

Ingredients

  • Cake Mixture:
  • 3 cups almond flour
  • 2 tsps sea salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tbsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 1/4 tsps ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup erythritol (like Swerve) or spoonable stevia to taste
  • 5 large organic eggs
  • 1/4 cup melted coconut oil or grape seed oil
  • 3 cups shredded carrots
  • 1 cup raisins
  • 1 cup walnuts, chopped (optional)
  • Cream Cheese Frosting:
  • 2 – 8 ounce packages of organic cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup plain Amasai or organic heavy whipping cream
  • 1 tbsp vanilla
  • 1/2 cup erythritol (like Swerve) or spoonable stevia to taste

Instructions

  1. Cake Mixture
  2. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  3. Grease two 9-inch cake pans with butter and dust with almond flour.
  4. In a large bowl, combine the dry ingredients and mix well.
  5. In a medium bowl, whisk together the oil and eggs.
  6. Stir the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Fold in the carrots, raisins and walnuts if desired.
  7. Pour the batter into the prepared cake pans. The batter will be a bit thick, so try to even it by pushing the batter down carefully rather than spreading it.

  9. Let the cakes cool for 1 hour before frosting.
  10. Cream Cheese Frosting
