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.
