When I told Gordy I was making carrot cake he was a bit puzzled when he saw this loaf cooling on the counter. Where's the cream cheese icing? Ok, so its not a carrot cake, its a carrot loaf, and there is no icing, just some hemp hearts on top for crunch. So I am calling it carrot cake in the nude because it is packed full of clean ingredients and that kinda make this cake/loaf nude. It has nothing to hide behind, all good and healthy for you and me and Gordy.
Makes 1 Loaf. I used a 9 x 5 glass loaf pan.
1/2 cup shredded carrots
1/3 cup coconut oil, melted and slightly cooled
1/4 cup honey or maple syrup
3 eggs, large
2 cups almond flour
2 tbsp coconut flour
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp turmeric
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1/3 cup of currents
1 tbsp hemp hearts to sprinkle on top of the loaf
1. Preheat oven to 325° and grease a 9 x 5 loaf pan with coconut oil.
2. In a large bowl, combine the shredded carrots, cooled coconut oil, honey and eggs; stir until combined.
3. Add the almond flour, coconut flour, salt, turmeric, cinnamon, nutmeg, baking soda, baking powder and currents. Mix well and spoon into the loaf pan. (The mixture will seem a bit dry). Even out with the back of a spoon. Sprinkle with the hemp hearts.
4. Bake for 40 to 50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
If you do not have currents your could use raisins.
This loaf will stay fresh in the fridge.
