In light of the spring time holidays, we have put together a “healthier” alternative to a classic carrot cake recipe. Of course, it is okay to indulge every once in a while! Since it is a bit healthier, you may be able to get away with a second slice 🙂

General Instructions

  • Oven: 325 F
  • Cook time: 40 minutes
  • Serves: 20

You Will Need…

  • 2 cups whole wheat flour (or 1 cup white, 1 cup whole wheat)
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • 3 cups of raw, grated carrots
  • ¾ cup agave
  • ¼ cup canola oil
  • ¼ cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 cup plain yogurt (Greek or fat free)
  • 1 tbs vanilla extract
  • 4 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 6 oz cream cheese
  • 6 oz plain yogurt (Greek or fat free)
  • Stevia, to taste

Cake Recipe

  • In a separate bowl, mix together the following ingredients: flour, baking soda, baking powder, pumpkin pie spice
  • Gradually add dry mix to the wet ingredients
  • Fold in grated carrots
  • Line a 9 x 13 pan with parchment paper and/or use non-stick cooking spray
