Healthy Buckwheat Carrot Cake (gluten free, vegan) - Healthy Dessert Recipes at Desserts with Benefits

Looking for a sweet, flavorful and dessert-like (yet healthy) snacking cake?

Well, this Buckwheat Carrot Cake is it!  Each slice is full of spices typical to carrot cake, such as cinnamon and nutmeg, along with the classic orange specks from freshly grated carrots, plus a little hint of citrus to brighten it all up.  Except, there’s something a little different between a regular old carrot cake and this carrot cake…

This cake healthy.

And it is sweet, satisfying and flavorful enough to be eaten on its own.  You don’t need a heavy, buttery and sugary cream cheese frosting!

(But, if you did, this healthified version is definitely the way to go)

Without the frosting, this cake is portable so you can take it with you on the go to school, work, the gym, wherever.  It’s the perfect pick me up and you’d never know it’s actually good for you, nutritious and totally guilt-free!
