Healthy Carrot Cake

I was given a great recipe for carrot cake so I tweaked it a little and made it a little bit more healthy. Even though it was healthy it tasted amazing.

Ingredients:

1 cup applesauce

3 eggs

3 cups shredded carrots (approx. 4 large carrots)

1/2 cup agave nectar

2 cups whole wheat flour

1 tsp. Baking Soda

2 tsp. cinnamon

Topping:

5 oz. Neufchatel Cheese

3 Tbsp. Agave Nectar

1/4 tsp. vanilla extract

Directions

  1. Mix wet ingredients together.

  2. Add shredded carrots

  3. Mix dry ingredients in separate bowl

  4. Mix 2 bowls together.

  5. Grease 9X13 pan (could use any kind of pan or make cupcakes)

  6. Bake 350 degrees for 25 minutes.

I figured out all the nutritional information (using a 9X13 pan and cut into 12 pieces).
