Here is a healthy halloweeny twist on the traditional carrot cake. I have added butternut squash and mixed spice to make it more seasonal and totally grain-free, gluten-free, dairy-free as well as low-sugar. Your kids will gobble this down, and won’t even know it’s healthy!
Finding cakes that are healthy and delicious can be quite a challenge. Many children with gut problems do not tolerate grains well and many of the kids I look after in my clinic need to be on a low carbohydrate diet such as the Specific Carbohydrate or Paleo diet. Many more need to be gluten and dairy-free.
I love this recipe because it is so easy to make as you can mix all the ingredients together in one bowl, no need for a whisk or worrying about getting enough air in the mixture. You do need to bake it in a fairly cool oven to prevent the nuts from burning.
