  • 1 cup mashed banana
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar
  • 1/3 cup non-dairy milk
  • 1 flax egg (or use 1 regular egg)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1.5 cups gluten-free oat flour
  • 1/2 cup gluten-free rolled oats or quick oats
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

  2. In a large bowl, mix together mashed banana, coconut sugar, milk, flax egg and vanilla until smooth
  3. Mix in the oat flour, oats, baking powder and spices until well combined
  4. Fold in carrots and nuts then add to bread dish and bake in oven for 40-42 minutes (I stick a toothpick in and when it comes out clean – it is ready!)
  5. While the bread is baking, make the cream cheese frosting by creaming together the cream cheese, sugar, cinnamon and vanilla with hand mixer
  6. Spread the frosting on the carrot cake when it is cool and slice and enjoy!
