Keto Carrot Cake Recipe [with Cream Cheese Frosting]

Carrot cake is far from keto-friendly. The carrots, cake, and cream cheese icing saturate each slice with excess sugar and net carbs.

Although you can have other types of cake on keto — such as chocolate mug cake or keto cheesecake — they simply don’t match the unique texture and flavor of a high-quality carrot cake with cream cheese frosting.

However, this doesn’t mean you have to give up carrot cake to reach your keto goals. In fact, by using what we’ve learned from other low-carb cake recipes, it’ll be surprisingly easy to get your carrot cake fix in a keto-friendly way.

By replacing all-purpose flour with low-carb flour, subbing out the sugar for keto sweetener, and using just the right amount of carrot, you’ll be able to have your carrot cake and eat it too.

With these simple keto swaps, you will decrease the net carbs in each carrot cake slice by over 90% without comprising on flavor or texture.

That being said, you may still be wondering how it is possible to have carrots on keto since they are relatively high-carb. The secret is using no more than you need to get the perfect bite each time. (However, if you prefer to keep carrot out of your diet, you can replace it with shredded zucchini instead.)

All in all, these are the changes needed to make your carrot cake keto-friendly, gluten-free, healthy, and absolutely delicious.
