CARROT, GINGER & ORANGE SLICE (gluten, grain & sugar free)

IMG_8559

Hello all – I’ve been in New Zealand enjoying some family and vacation time, which is why things have been a little quiet on the blog-front in the last couple weeks. I hope everyone, whether in warm or wintry climes, has been well!

Here’s a delicious recipe I made whilst at home that is perfectly sweetened with the natural sugars of orange, carrot and a small amount of raw honey. Remember the importance of reducing your sugar intake! It may feel tricky at first, but expect less cravings, irritability and weight-gain, and more stabilized moods, better sleeps and an overall more positive outlook. Read more in my sugar blog here.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup coconut oil / butter / ghee
  • 2 TBSP raw honey
  • 2 TBSP water
  • the juice of one orange
  • the zest of an orange or 2 tsp or orange oil
  • 1 TBSP ginger powder
  • 1 TBSP cinnamon
  • 2 large carrots grated
  • 4 eggs
  • 3/4 cup of coconut flour OR 1 1/2 cups of almond flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda

Directions:

In a saucepan gently melt down and mix together the oil, honey, water, orange juice and zest/oil.

Grate the carrots into a bowl and add the ginger, cinnamon and eggs. Add the saucepan contents, stir and then hand whisk for a couple of minutes.

Fold in the flour and baking soda.

Pour the mixture into a square tin roughly

Bake on 160 deg celsius for 45 minutes or until the slice springs back on touch
