Primal Carrot Cake with Coconut and Walnuts Recipe | This Primal Life

Primal Carrot Cake with Coconut and Walnuts Recipe | This Primal Life: "Primal Carrot Cake with Coconut and Walnuts
I couldn’t resist the maple syrup.� After all, a quarter cup divided among an entire cake isn’t very much.� If you really want to get primal, though, feel free to leave it out and throw in some raisins instead.

2 cups almond flour
2 � tsp baking powder
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp salt
� cup chopped walnuts
1 cup flaked coconut
3 med-large carrots, grated
3 ripe bananas, mashed
� cup coconut milk
3 eggs
� cup maple syrup

8 oz cream cheese
3 tbsp maple syrup

In a large bowl, mix the almond flour with the baking powder, cinnamon and salt.� Mix in the walnuts, coconut, and carrots.� Set a side.� In another bowl, mix the bananas, coconut milk, eggs, and maple syrup.� Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir.�� Transfer batter to a greased, parchment-lined loaf pan (9�5x3) and bake at 350 degrees for 50 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.� Allow to cool somewhat before frosting.

To make the frosting, just whip the cream cheese and maple syrup together with an electric hand mixer until it reaches a fluffy consistency."
