Delicious Healthy Flourless Carrot Cake

healthy almond flour carrot cake recipe
Carrots are fun to eat raw (because what isn't fun about crunchy raw veggies and dip??) but Holy Moly, carrots taste even better when they are baked in healthy for you flourless cakes!

But, before we eat our carrots, let's review why we Eating.Carrots.Is.Healthy.For.Us.

(even when they are in a cake with heavenly frosting)

Studies suggest that the alpha-carotene in carrots helps fight plaque build-up in arteries in the brain. Clear arteries means blood flows cleaner, and stroke risk is reduced.

Women who eat at least five carrots a week are 68% less likely to suffer a stroke than women who eat carrots only once a month, according to the research.

{Yep, go ahead and grab a carrot from your refrigerator now. I'll wait.}

Carrots contain Vitamins A, B, C and E. They are an excellent source of soluble fiber, and are low in calories and sodium. And the carotene in carrots help lower the risk of heart disease.

These crunchy veggies are good for your teeth and skin (the Vitamin A helps protect skin from sun damage, helps prevent wrinkles and dryness).

Carrots have been shown to help fight lung, breast and colon cancer.

And yes, they are good for your eyes!
