Carrot Cake Healthy Recipe Notes

This carrot cake is gluten free and made with coconut flour!  When cooking with almond flour you have to be aware of your ratios!  Generally coconut flour is a 1:4 ratio.  Meaning that 1 cup of all purpose flour equals approximately 1/4 cup of coconut flour.

This is very important when moisture is involved!  The secret weapon to make this carrot cake healthy recipe delicious and moist is pineapple!  Pineapple gives a natural sweetness that helps to keep the recipe free of refined sugar.  But it also adds an added level of moisture!

So  – you have to make sure that you drain your crushed pineapple thoroughly!  You will want the bread dough to be bread consistency, not too runny! If you have too much moisture, your bread will fall in the middle (and likely won’t be cooked through!)

If you have to add in a bit more coconut flour, no big deal!  I actually tested this recipe twice and added in more coconut flour since my first batch was a bust!
