  • 1 ½ cups almond flour: Packed with nutrients, almond flour adds a nutty flavor while keeping the cake gluten-free and low in carbohydrates.

  • 1 cup unsweetened applesauce: Applesauce acts as a natural sweetener and a fat substitute, contributing to the cake's moist texture and reducing the calorie content.

  • ½ cup Greek yogurt: Rich in protein and probiotics, Greek yogurt enhances the cake's creaminess and aids in digestion.

  • 3 large eggs: Eggs provide essential protein and contribute to the cake's structure and binding.

  • ½ cup raw honey or maple syrup: These natural sweeteners add a touch of sweetness without causing a spike in blood sugar levels.

  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract: Vanilla adds depth to the cake's flavor, enhancing its overall appeal.

  • 1 teaspoon baking powder: Baking powder helps the cake rise without the need for excessive fats.

  • ½ teaspoon baking soda: Baking soda assists in creating a light and fluffy texture.

  • ¼ teaspoon salt: A pinch of salt balances the sweetness and enhances the cake's taste.

  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon: Cinnamon not only brings warmth to the cake but also aids in stabilizing blood sugar levels.

  • ½ cup grated zucchini: Zucchini adds moisture and nutrients, making the cake tender and contributing to easy digestion.

  • ½ cup grated carrots: Carrots boost the cake's nutritional value with vitamins and minerals while keeping it low in calories.

Mode of preparation:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and grease a cake pan with a light coating of coconut oil.

  1. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the almond flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt.

  1. In a separate bowl, combine the applesauce, Greek yogurt, eggs, honey (or maple syrup), and vanilla extract. Mix until well incorporated.

  1. Gradually fold the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, stirring gently to form a smooth batter.

  1. Add the grated zucchini and carrots to the batter, ensuring they are evenly distributed.

  1. Pour the batter into the greased cake pan and spread it out evenly.

  1. Bake the cake for approximately 35-40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

  1. Once baked, remove the cake from the oven and let it cool in the pan for 10 minutes before transferring it to a cooling rack.
