Carrot Cake – Gluten Free, Dairy Free

Gluten-Free Dairy-Free Carrot

Carrot Cake – Gluten, Dairy and Sugar Free

This carrot cake is so delicious and moist your family and friends will be surprised that it’s gluten free! It’s the perfect cake or cupcakes for your Easter celebration or anytime. It’s one of our favorites!

Vanilla Frosting - MamaShire

I use this Dairy-Free Vanilla Frosting on my carrot cake. If you don’t have to be dairy-free than use your favorite cream cheese frosting.

I use a food processor to make quick work of this cake. One of my most used kitchen appliances is my Cuisinart Food Processor. I’ve had several less expensive models over the years that couldn’t keep up, but this one is built to last and work hard and I work it hard. It’s on my list of must haves in the kitchen.
I’m sharing a different version of this recipe on Raising Homemakers using coconut sugar and maple syrup.

Trim Healthy Mamas this cake is a crossover!

Pumpkin Oatmeal Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Pumpkin Oatmeal Chocolate Chunk Cookies - Gluten-Free -

These pumpkin oatmeal chocolate chunk cookies are delightful little treats with a crunchy outside and a chewy inside. They make me think of a cross between an oatmeal cookie and those pumpkin treats that you can buy that have the little faces on them, but a healthier version with the added bonus of being gluten-free, dairy-free, sugar-free, and egg-free.

My daughter and I both thought these would be yummy for an afternoon snack with coffee or tea or to serve them alongside of a lean protein for a flavorful breakfast.

I like to keep some Lindt 85% Cocoa Chocolate bar already chopped and stored in a jar so I can quickly add it to recipes like these cookies.

For Trim Healthy Mamas these cookies are a Crossover. If you don’t have a sprouted gluten-free baking blend than you should be able to substitute with the THM Baking Blend. I haven’t tried it so may need to tweak the liquid ingredients, as I think the THM Baking Blend is a thirstier flour. You can use this sweetener chart to make adjustments if using a different type of sweetener.
