Low Carb Carrot Cake

keto 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.

Can You Have Carrots On The Keto Diet?

Don’t be afraid of carrots on the keto diet. They are loaded with fiber and vitamins. Sure, they might have carbs, but they are okay to consume on the ketogenic diet in small quantities. This keto carrot cake recipe on uses 1 cup of shredded carrots for the entire cake!

Keto Cream Cheese Frosting

I topped my keto carrot cake with cream cheese frosting. This keto frosting has a little extra bite to it because I added some sour cream. You can also use plain yogurt. My favorite keto yogurt is the plain yogurt from PEAK YOGURT. Each container has 24 g of FAT and 4 g CARBS and is delicious on its own. Make sure to double the recipe if you love keto cream cheese frosting.

Keto Carrot Cake Storage

Keto cakes tend to dry out faster than traditional cakes containing sugar. Sugar substitutes don’t hold moisture like real sugar does. It’s important to store the keto carrot cake in an airtight container in the refrigerator or room temperature if you want to extend the shelf life of the cake.

Luckily, the carrots in this recipe provide moisture to the cake so it keeps longer than most keto cakes.
