Healthy Homemade Carrot Cake

Looking for delicious Easter dessert recipes? Things are about to get awesome! This healthy homemade carrot cake recipe is perfect for Easter or spring!

Sometimes holidays can be a little hard when it comes to living a plant-based lifestyle, especially when eating at someone's home. I ALWAYS volunteer to bring things that I can eat because Easter dinners seem to be full of ham, cheesy potatoes, and deviled eggs. It's my contribution of this carrot cake that is life changing. :)


This carrot cake is health-ier than most because it's made with less sugar, added applesauce, raisins, nuts and, of course, carrots providing some serious Vitamin A and no cholesterol. Yay!
