One thing we try and do here at Fit Foodie Finds is bake with similar ingredients in all of our recipes so you aren't scrambling to find weird/hard-to-find ingredients! Here's the basis of what you need:
Healthy Carrot Cake Ingredients
- white whole wheat flour
- ground cinnamon
- coconut oil
- maple syrup
- grated carrots
- Greek yogurt
Lightened-Up Cream Cheese Frosting

Can I make this cake vegan?
While we haven't tested this recipe with flax eggs, we are confident that it will work. Follow our How to Make a Flax Egg recipe! In addition to a flax egg, you can replace the Greek yogurt with a non-dairy yogurt or even more mashed banana.
Can I sub a different flour such as almond flour or coconut four?
The short answer to this is NO. Coconut flour and almond flour can NOT be swapped 1:1 with white whole wheat flour. You'll need to find a grain-free specific carrot cake recipe if you want to go that route.
