Healthy Carrot Cake


You can find more of my recipes at This is a vegan, healthy, and whole grain version of classic carrot cake. It's low fat and made with spelt and kamut flour. The icing is a coconut cream studded with maple roasted pecans. The kamut flour adds a lovely buttery depth of flavour without using any butter. This was my birthday cake this year, and it went over really well with family.
