Healthy carrot cake

Carrots may not exactly ‘help you see in the dark’ but they are packed with beta-carotene, which is converted into vitamin A in the body and is a key nutrient for healthy eyes, skin and the immune system. This cake is made from spelt flour, which isn’t gluten free, but unless you have a true gluten allergy or coeliac disease, you may find you are able to tolerate to it occasionally – it is less likely to cause digestive issues such as bloating that is associated with wheat. If you don’t mind a slightly more dense loaf, you could experiment with a gluten free oat flour as an alternative. Oats add a healthy dose of soluble fibre to keep digestion moving, we’ve added rolled oats to this recipe, along with walnuts and flaxseeds that are rich in anti-inflammatory omega 3 fats.
