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
