    Default Carrot Cake healthy alternative

    I just wanted to share the recipe for a cake I made for my daughters birthday. I used natural ingredients in lieu of refined sugar...
    I did make a few changes from the original I didn't use any stevia... instead of the date sugar I used raw organic honey and apple juice.... that was plenty when mixed with the pineapple juice and pineapple... also instead of the whole wheat flour I used coconut flour which is almost 100% fiber.. also instead of walnuts I used macadamias
    With the frosting I used the same honey - no milk and a fresh lime from my tree... The icing was SOOO good
    This is NOT low carb but a better alternative and lower on the glycemic index than a store bought birthday cake... plus it's loaded with fruits and vegetables which have nutritional value
    Everyone Loved it !!

    Here is the link to the recipe http://www.stevia.com/SteviaRecipe.asp?Id=21

    and here is my finished cake


    And here it is more girl b-day party-ish

    Thanks !! even the leftovers were good ! I'm trying to teach my daughter to eat healthy because no one ever gave a crap about what I ate...So I do the best i can and I just hope she takes everything she has learned in to her adult life and doesn't struggle like me
