If you're a carrot cake, Matcha and wholegrain-low-sugar kind of person, then this is your cake! Obviously it isn't as sweet as the classic carrot cake but instead, it is rich in fibre, free from refined sugar and loaded with veggies, nuts and many other immune-system boosting nutrients. While my brother was in love with the cake when he tried it for the first time and immediately ordered a second one, my Dad, a true Gummibear fan, evaluated the cake in the following way: Karo, I really like you creativity in the kitchen and the cake tastes very good BUT... I need to add sugar.
He really did after all, while we were all sitting at our family coffee table enjoying the cake. I'm actually very happy he enjoyed his cake with a little bit more sugar, which he only he by the way needed. You can't change others you can only convince them step by step that there are such deliciously healthy alternatives to Gummibears out there.
But now, let's talk about this delicious, green Matcha Carrot Cake.
If you have the ingredients at hand, this cake is super easy to prep. What probably takes the longest is grinding the nuts, carrots and the flax seeds into meal. For the flax seeds, I used this electric grinder, which works perfectly for dry ingredients such as oats, flax and other grains & seeds.For the remaining ingredients, I usually use my food processor which also works perfectly to ground veggies, if I use the veggie attachment. Everything else is a one-bowl game. Mix all ingredients together, stir well with an electric hand whisk or your food processor and transfer the dough into your preferred baking dish. I used a classic bread baking dish for this recipe like this one.
Here are some of my favs. What you definitely should miss is this deliciously wholesome vegan and refined sugar-free Banana Bread. And if you're looking for something savory. Here is my go-to wholegrain bread recipe, which I love to eat as a wholesome and fibre-rich veggie side (or base in this case. I usually take all veggies I can find in my fridge and just throw them on top).
