How To Make Healthy Carrot Cake
The key healthy ingredients in this recipe include whole wheat flour, oat flour and coconut sugar. Healthy goodness in every bite!
To make this cake, start with mixing all the dry ingredients in a bowl. This includes whole wheat flour, oat flour, sugar, baking powder and spices. I have used unbleached whole meal flour in this recipe that’s easily available from your local grocery store.
Making oat flour at home is super easy. All you need to do is grind rolled oats until it turns into a very fine powder. You can use this oat flour to make healthier versions of pancakes, waffles etc.
I have also replaced regular granulated or caster sugar with coconut sugar that’s actually a brilliant substitute in your baking recipes. Coconut sugar is not as sweet as the regular sugar, but it adds a slight sweetness to the cake.
In another bowl, you will need to beat the eggs until foamy. Then add in oil and vanilla extract. Mix everything together. Now carefully fold in half of the flour mixture into the eggs followed by the remaining flour mixture.
At this stage, you can also add in some grated veggies or fruits to the healthy cake mixture and this will impart extra moisture and deliciousness to the cake.
Transfer this cake mixture into a cake tin and bake. Finally, slice and serve with your afternoon tea.
