3 cups grated carrot
5 eggs
1 cup Butter melted
3 tbsp Natvia (granulated)
1 ½ cups Almond meal/flour
2 tsp Baking powder
1 tsp Cinnamon
1 tsp Mixed spice
½ cup Chopped walnuts
2 tsp Vanilla essence
½ cup Coconut (desiccated or thread)

Beat eggs, melted butter, Natvia, and vanilla together. Add grated carrot, walnuts, and coconut then mix almond meal, spices and baking powder. Bake in a 25cm tin for 40 minutes at 170 degrees C or until firm to touch. A knife inserted into the cake should come out clean.

It is fine without icing, however if you are a fan of cream cheese icing, mix cream cheese, lemon juice and 1 tbsp of stevia and ice when cake is cold
