The Best Carrot Cake Ever . . .

. . . which just happens to be gluten-free and healthy!  :)  I make this recipe for pretty much every birthday, and everyone loves it.  It's a blend of two recipes, Healthy Family's Carrot Cake with a few ideas from Elana's pantry Carrot Cake, with a few slight alterations.  So I follow the first recipe, for the most part, but then do double raisins, double applesauce, less than half the sugar, part almond flour for rice flour, and only 1/2 c olive oil.  I make it gluten-free, but using wheat flour would only make it easier.  I have gotten two thumbs up from gluten-eaters as well.  It's some great cake, and Owen's standing request for his birthday cake.

Here's our bunny-themed party--Happy Birthday, Daddy!
