Moist sugar-free carrot cake without butter. Kids love the cake for its sweetness and grown-ups for its missing sugar. Perfect for all who want to snack healthy.
Hello everybody. Today I have a healthy, but still absolutely awesome cake recipe for you. Believe me: The cake will convince you!
Taste and Occasion
I recently created the apple and carrot cake for an invitation with young children. All of them loved the cake. As did I. I actually like it very very much!
Kids love that they can eat the cake out of their hands, and parents don't have to be scared, as the consistency is firm and reminds me of flan. So, all in all, it's a great healthy cake for the complementary feeding age. The important thing is that you use ripe fruits that have sufficient sweetness. Carrots are slightly sweet anyway. Cinnamon and lemon juice are optional, but they belong in the cake for me.
The apple cake without sugar for babies and toddlers is, of course, also suitable for adults.
Very finely grated apples and carrots and one really ripe banana are the recipe for success for this healthy cake without sugar and butter.
The recipe is a win-win situation: it contains a portion (or two 😉) of vitamins - but they can be "hidden" very well - and the recipe is based on the Clean Baking concept. This means you only use natural, preferably unprocessed ingredients. At least if you use whole wheat flour. The baby cake is soft, super juicy, and creamy. Just like the healthy banana cake.
How to make the Sugarfree Apple Carrot Cake
Let's get started with this pretty easy apple carrot cake recipe. First things first: Grate the carrot and apple very finely. Mash banana to purée and set everything aside. Now, preheat the oven to 350°F/175°C. Beat the egg with the yogurt, and stir in the coconut oil. Then, mix the remaining dry ingredients and add them to the wet ingredients. Stir in briefly but thoroughly. Finally, stir in the prepared fruit (purée).
It's time to grease the small springform pan and dust it with flour or line with baking paper. Pour in dough and smooth out. Bake cake for about 40 minutes. It is best to store it in the refrigerator. And that's it!
The coconut oil gives the sugar-free apple-carrot cake a coconut taste. You can also use butter instead, but as a consequence, you need a more significant amount.

This carrot cake is not only low in fat and calories, but also extra fruity and moist, thanks to pineapple in the dough. This is how a good healthy carrot cake can taste!
If you like this recipe, check out my other healthy kid's cakes without added sugar, such as the banana cake without eggs, butter, and milk; the vegan apple pie, or the chocolate cake without flour, eggs, and sugar.
Those recipes are also great cakes for babies for their 1st birthday. Or for adult women for their 30th birthday 😉. Please do not compare recipes like this in terms of taste with full-fat sugar-rich cakes.
Nevertheless: I really like to eat this apple-carrot cake without sugar. You have my word of honor!
