Keto Carrot Cake

This keto carrot cake with cream cheese is spiced and sweet, just like the real thing. Almond flour and coconut flour gives this keto dessert a cake like texture. Moist, and delicious with a cinnamon aroma. A keto carrot cake sure sounds like my sugar free dessert for tonight.

Keto carrot cake

  • Make sure all liquids are brought to room temperature. Coconut oil should be in liquid state. And eggs should also be room temperature. This avoids the coconut oil from hardening from coldness.
  • Dry ingredients combine almond flour, coconut flour, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and optional brown sugar alternative sweetener
  • Wet ingredients combine eggs, coconut oil, sugar free maple syrup, vanilla extract, stevia
  • Combine dry and wet ingredients
  • At this point you fold in your optional carrots and your walnuts. Or anything else you'd like to add such as shredded coconut, pecans, etc.
  • Bake in oven at 300 degrees F for 20 minutes. Check at the 15 minute time for doneness. Afterward check every 5 minutes to ensure cake doesn't overcook and come out dry. Allow to cool before icing

Sugar free cream cheese icing

  • Bring butter and cream cheese to room temperature to ensure their softness.
  • Cream butter and cream cheese
  • Add in vanilla extract, powdered sweetener, and heavy cream
  • Combine until smooth
