Whole Wheat Carrot Cake

Whole Wheat Carrot Cake

Easiest and best ever Whole Wheat Carrot Cake!!

This cake is not any special, its just another carrot cake that my whole family loves. Who doesn’t love a healthy cake?? So this cake can be had even for breakfast for a healthy option.

My Son just wanted it right out of the oven. He is always around whenever I start to arrange the ingredients to bake. And his ears are so sharp, he will run to the oven as soon as the oven bell rings.

So most of the time I bake when he sleeps and hide it somewhere to avoid his sweet carvings. I give him just a portion of it.

This Whole Wheat Carrot Cake uses wheat flour and brown sugar. I used coconut oil to avoid refined ingredients. You can always use any other flavorless oil too.

I have made a gluten free Carrot Cake using almond flour that’s just so perfect for everyone.

  1. Lovely carrot cake . This one is a healthy one with wheat flour . All children are very smart these days , he must be waiting for his special bake to enjoy . No wonder he hears the oven bell ringing :)) so cute , how old is he ?

  2. Vegetable / fruit based bakes with natural ingredients always appeal to me and this carrot cake tops that list! Beautiful texture to the cake and perfect for a snack / breakfast on the go ..
