Ingredients

Cake

Frosting

  • 8 ounces cream cheese (room temperature)
  • 3 tablespoons butter (room temperature)
  • 1 cup powdered sweetener (I recommed Swerve)

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease a 9-inch pan and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, stir together the almond flour, coconut flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt. Set aside.
  • In a small bowl, beat together the eggs, monk fruit sweetener, and vanilla extract until fully combined.
  • Pour the egg mixture into the flour mixture. Mix until a rough dough forms.
  • Stir in the carrots.
  • Add the coconut and walnuts, then mix to combine.
  • Press the mixture into the prepared pan.
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean and the edges of the cake are just golden.
  • Allow the cake to cool in the pan for at least 15 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
  • Meanwhile, in a large bowl, beat together the cream cheese and butter until smooth, about 2 minutes. Add the powdered sweetener and mix until completely combined.
  • Once the cake has cooled, frost with cream cheese frosting. Decorate with additional walnuts if desired.

Notes

This recipe is for 8 servings. If you cut your cake into 8 slices, each slice will be 1 serving.
