This healthy carrot cake recipe round up is to celebrate MY BIRTHDAY!! Woohoo!! And since carrot cake is my absolute favorite kind of birthday cake, we are celebrating with a full day of carrot cake inspired recipes! It’s my birthday! It’s actually a pretty epic birthday for me, I’m turning 30 today! So yes Happy Birthday to Me!!!
Ever since I was a little girl I’ve asked for carrot cake for my birthday. There are very fond memories of me at a small age licking the frosting off of the plate. Honestly, there is nothing better if you ask me!!
I crave my mom’s homemade cake. She always had the perfect amount of spices and the frosting was always just thick enough (unless I happened to get my fingers in it early, in which case you can guarantee half the bowl was gone before she had a chance to ice the cake)! I never had a store bought cake for my birthday, and I’m proud to say that! Homemade always taste better to me, and now that I’m older and realize all the chemicals in the store bought icing, I’m even more grateful of my mom making me a cake every year.
I’m lucky enough that some of my blogging friends sent me their favorite healthy carrot cake recipes so we can all celebrate together!! My goal was to share healthy recipes that you can enjoy any time of the day! I celebrate my birthday all week, and hope to make a few of these recipes soon!
