    Since Canola oil isn’t the healthiest oil (too high in Omega 6 and most likely GM)I substituted Macadamia oil. Another healthy substitute would be coconut oil. The two flavours go well with carrots, too.

    I’m glad you like it! I’m in the process of creating more nutritious dessert recipes. As soon as Georgia peaches start arriving in Florida, I’m bound and determined to come up with a recipe to replace my old peach pie recipe that was full of heavy cream and processed sugar. If you’re willing taste test, I’ll let you know when I start experimenting with potential peach pie recipes. :-)

    I think this is my new favorite recipe! I’ve been looking for a healthy carrot cake recipe for a long time because most of the pre-made cakes have loads of saturated fats and preservatives. Awesome stuff!
