Delicious Guilt-Free Cake- Birthday, Whole Wheat Flour, Sugar-free, Carrot, Coconut, YUM!

I didn't start taking pictures until the end of baking this cake... and here is the honest truth: My mom is a very health conscience eater and she does not eat white sugar or flour. So when it came time to make her a birthday cake, I didn't really plan on making a cake that actually tasted good. It was more for the thought of making her a birthday cake. Well surprisingly, this cake is quite delicious and, dare I say, good for you!

Ingredients: This is to make a small pie-pan cake. To make a regular size (9x13) double the recipe.

3/4 c Whole Wheat flour
1/2 tsp. Baking Powder
1/4 tsp. Baking Soda
1/4 tsp. Salt
1/2 tsp. Cinnamon
1/4 tsp. Nutmeg

4 Tbs. Butter (1/2 stick)
1 large Egg
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1/2 cup Almond Milk
1/4 cup Maple Syrup
1 cup shredded Carrot
1/2 cup shredded Coconut

Mix dry ingredients. Beat wet ingredients. Mix dry and wet together. Spread evenly in a greased pie pan. Batter will be thick. Bake at 350 for about 25 minutes.

1 cup Coconut Oil
2 Tbs. Honey
2 Tbs. Maple Syrup
Optional- mix in some reserved shredded carrot and/or coconut

Wait for cake to cool completely before spreading on frosting!

And that's all folks. Enjoy!

Happy Birthday Mom!
