Coconut Flour Carrot Loaf Cakes

These cakes are very tasty and contain healthy ingredients like butter, eggs, carrots, coconut flour and raisins and no refined grains or sugars. They are wheat and gluten free and contain coconut flour but if you don't like coconut don't worry - they don't taste of coconut at all!

Ingredients (makes 6 loaf cakes or 8 muffins)

·         50g butter, melted

·         3 tbsp coconut milk

·         3 medium free range eggs beaten

·         3 tbsp honey (raw is best)

·         Zest of one large orange

·         1 tsp ground cinnamon

·         ½ tsp nutmeg (freshly grated for best flavour)

·         35g coconut flour

·         Pinch Salt

·         1 tsp gluten free baking powder

·         2 medium carrots, grated

·         50g raisins (optional)

Pre-heat the oven to 180 degrees centigrade (adjust accordingly for fan oven)

Blend together the butter, coconut milk, eggs, honey and orange zest

Combine together the coconut flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt and baking powder

Mix the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients until there are no lumps

Add the grated carrot and raisins and mix in well

Bake for 15 minutes on the middle shelf
