Cook time:
Total: 45 minutes


  • ¾ cup almond butter
  • 3 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
  • ½ cup granulated erythritol (such as Swerve Granular)
  • 1 ½ teaspoons baking soda
  • 2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 cup carrots, grated
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened flaked coconut
  • 3 eggs
  • Ingredients for frosting:
  • 4 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 4 tablespoons cream cheese, softened
  • 2 tablespoons granulated erythritol (such as Swerve Granular), or to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 325. Line an 8x8 inch square baking dish with parchment paper. Grease with coconut oil on a paper towel. Set aside.
  2. Measure almond butter and place in a medium bowl. Add coconut oil through flaked coconut. Mix well in a stand mixer to combine.
  3. In a separate stand mixer bowl, mix eggs well with a whisk attachment (or a hand mixer if you prefer). Fold eggs into almond butter batter.
  4. Spread batter into prepared pan. Bake at 325 for 25 to 30 minutes (check for doneness with a toothpick; middle may jiggle slightly but still be done with the toothpick test). Do not overcook.
  5. While cake cools, prepare frosting. Spread on top of cake and refrigerate until serving.
