Frosted Banana Bread Carrot Cake

Just trying to find ways to eat more carrot cake (but grain-free and higher in protein).


For the Cake:

  • 1/2 cup Banana Bread ChiChi
  • 2 tbsp flax seeds
  • 3/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp melted coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 1/4 cup milk (dairy or non-dairy)
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup shredded carrots
  • 2 tbsp chopped walnuts (optional)

For the Frosting:

  • 1/2 cup Greek yogurt
  • 2 tbsp honey (adjust to taste)


  1. Preheat and Prep: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a loaf pan or line it with parchment paper for easy removal.

  2. Blend and bake: All your cake ingredients, except the 2 tbsp walnuts. Once blended, fold in your walnuts into the batter. Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan and bake for about 45 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  3. Cool: Once baked, remove the cake from the oven and allow it to cool in the pan for about 10 minutes. Then transfer it to a wire rack to cool completely before frosting.

  4. Prepare Frosting: While the cake is cooling, prepare the frosting. In a small bowl, mix together the Greek yogurt and honey until smooth. Adjust the sweetness to your liking by adding more honey if desired.

  5. Frost the Cake: Once the cake has cooled completely, generously spread the Greek yogurt frosting over the top. Add extra cinnamon and walnuts if desired, slice, and enjoy!
