    Carrot Cake - The Low Carb Version

    Post by Jan1 on Mon Jun 01 2015, 08:42


    A classic low carb carrot cake with cream cheese icing is a fabulous treat with your morning tea or coffee, and also works well as a dessert.

    Low Carb Carrot Cake

    Nutrition Information:
    Serves: 20
    Calories: 174
    Fat: 16.7g
    Saturated fat: 7.9g
    Carbohydrates: 1.7g
    Sodium: 116mg
    Protein: 4.0g

    Ingredients:
    3 cups grated carrot
    5 eggs
    1 cup Butter melted
    3 tbsp Natvia (granulated)
    1 ½ cups Almond meal/flour
    2 tsp Baking powder
    1 tsp Cinnamon
    1 tsp Mixed spice
    ½ cup Chopped walnuts
    2 tsp Vanilla essence
    ½ cup Coconut (desiccated or thread)

    Instructions:
    Beat eggs, melted butter, Natvia, and vanilla together. Add grated carrot, walnuts, and coconut then mix almond meal, spices and baking powder. Bake in a 25cm tin for 40 minutes at 170 degrees C or until firm to touch. A knife inserted into the cake should come out clean.

    It is fine without icing, however if you are a fan of cream cheese icing, mix cream cheese, lemon juice and 1 tbsp of stevia and ice when cake is cold

    Hi Jan,
    I tried the carrot cake, but as the price of Almond flour is so high in South Africa, I used Flax flour/Powder that is about 75% cheaper.
    Its a winner really moist and soft and a good taste.
    I did put a bit of Water in the mixture as it was VERY stiff, and added a bit more of the spices.
    It is now a "TO Keep" recipe, I've always enjoyed Carrot cake and missed it
    Thank you Very Happy

    Hi Randburg ... many thanks for the feed-back on this recipe idea. It's always good to hear and I think it helps others too.

    So pleased to hear it's in your 'To Keep' pile, or do you keep them in a folder?

    If anyone else gives this a try do please leave feed-back.  Smile

    All the best Jan

    Did you know ... Cinnamon is a popular spice often associated with baked treats, cereals and smoothies. However, you may not have considered that the teaspoon of cinnamon that you add to your baked treats may doing you more good than you realized. Studies have shown that cinnamon could assist with boosting brain function, fighting cancer, aiding in digestion, supporting weight loss and fighting diabetes.

    Incorporate cinnamon into your life by:
    Adding a cinnamon quill into your morning tea, sprinkling half a teaspoon of ground cinnamon onto your homemade granola or adding a sprinkle of cinnamon into your next bowl of breakfast oatmeal.

    Has this woman no shame in bumping up posts !!!
    Not when it's a great recipe like this Smile

    Why not get some carrots and almond meal and give it a try, although Randburg uses Flax flour/Powder which he finds is about 75% cheaper.
