Can a carrot cake be sugar free and keto?
Carrot cake is a favorite cake loved by many.
It is probably my most popular keto dessert recipe on my social media although a close rival is my keto chocolate cake and a new recipe I have keto cheesecake. Everyone who tries this sugar-free cake, loves it as well as their non-keto friends and family! I especially love it in the Spring and around Easter because that’s usually the season of carrot cake.
I created this keto carrot cake recipe with cream cheese frosting because I needed to satisfy my occasional craving for carrot cake.
This low carb cake recipe is moist and full of carrot and spice flavors because it is made using REAL carrots.
Using real carrots helps give this cake a spongy texture and helps keep the almond flour based cake from drying out. We also don’t use coconut flour in this recipe as coconut flour tends to be more dense and will be a denser cake instead of one that is light and airy.
Many keto carrot cake recipes use carrot cake flavoring extract instead of actual carrots. They do this because some keto police say that carrots aren’t keto. But that’s not true. As long as you aren’t consuming a ton a carrots, the occasional carrot isn’t going to budge your carb limit that much.
Using real grated carrots in this recipe not only produces authentic carrot cake flavor but it provides moisture to the cake too. You will be sold once you make this low carb carrot cake and so will your guests. Just cover with frosting and if desired, top with chopped walnuts.
