Craving Dessert? It’s Time To Try This Paleo Carrot Cake Recipe

The paleo diet is meant to resemble the diet of hunters and gatherers from ancient civilizations, with the goal being an increase in whole foods and a total decrease from anything processed. Yes, it’s impossible to know exactly what humans ate in every corner of the world, but we know that processed did not exist and that exercise was an inevitable aspect of life.

We also know that by following a whole food-based diet and leading physically active lives, hunter-gatherers likely enjoyed much lower rates of lifestyle diseases, such as obesity, diabetes, and heart disease.

The main distinguishing feature of the paleolithic diet is that it is flexible to different regions with different tastes. Other than processed foods, paleo eaters try to avoid sugar, soft drinks, grains, most dairy products, legumes, artificial sweeteners, vegetable oils, margarine and trans fats. Basically anything else is fair game, which many dieters appreciate for its flexibility to their own unique customs.

If you want to add some sensible indulgences into your paleo diet, consider organic dark chocolate or a little red wine. But the best way to really thrive on any restrictive diet (like paleo, keto, or Atkins) is to learn how to cook “non-sensible” indulgences in healthier ways. That way, you can feel like your diet is more “normal” than restrictive, and you can still enjoy the sweetness of life.

Our paleo carrot cake recipe is so much simpler than traditional baking

For this paleo carrot cake recipe, you will need almond flour, baking soda, coconut flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla, eggs, Himalayan sea salt, maple syrup, almond milk, a good source of oil (coconut, avocado, etc.), carrots, some kind of fruit (raisins work great), and chopped walnuts.

Conventional baking with wheat flours behaves a bit like a chemistry experiment; but often with special keto or paleo recipes, the final product comes together without much fuss. The recipe couldn’t be simpler. To start, mix the dry ingredients together in a bowl. In a second bowl, mix the wet ingredients together. Add the dry mixture to the wet until combined.

Pour the batter into greased-lined cake pans and bake for 25 minutes at 350 F, until a toothpick comes out clean. If you want to splurge on calories, make a delicious cream cheese frosting to top your cake. If you’re super serious about your diet, you can substitute some other frosting types for cream cheese.
