Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F and line an 8-inch square baking dish with parchment paper.
  2. In a bowl, whisk together the almond flour, coconut sugar, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt until well blended. Whisk in the eggs, applesauce, vanilla, and ginger, if using, until smooth.
  3. Fold in the carrots, walnuts, raisins, and chocolate chips, if using.
  4. Pour the batter into the baking dish, smooth out the top, and bake for about 25 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean when inserted in the middle.
  5. While the cake is baking, make the frosting and set aside.
  6. When the cake is done, let it cool completely in the pan before frosting or cutting.
  7. Spread the frosting evenly across the top of the cake and garnish with extra chopped walnuts, if desired. Cut into 9 to 12 bars to serve.
  8. Store the bars in a closed container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days

    I read through her kitchen essentials list and it seems the only thing I am lacking is time. But seriously this cookbook looks fantastic. Thank you for your contests. It is fun to enter and hopefully win!
    These recipes are awesome! I wonder if her old instagram account is still available to look at? Alexisk916.

    Repeatedly I keep seeing ‘it’s not an all or nothing approach’. I love this way of thinking since switching to any new type of eating is so hard to do for families. Small bits are the only thing people can do sometimes. Any book that says you should use a cast iron skillet is also a book right up my alley!

    I’m not exactly sure what you want me to say so I copied a review from what someone said about this cookbook:

    “5.0 out of 5 starsLove Lexi’s book cook book
    Love Lexi’s book cook book. I have many food allergies in my family so cooking paleo can be a challenge. Read more
    Published 19 hours ago by Marie Brett”

    I’m excited to try this cookbook. Getting it free would be so exciting. I love a good cookbook with “real life” recipes and that are easy to make. I see this comment repeatedly – “delicious and easy to make” Looking forward to trying it!

    I spent about 20 minutes or so reading through the portions of the book that was available when you “look inside.” I can relate to Lexi’s childhood. I was one of those kids who used to eat awful food choices after school like pretzels and chips just like she did. I also consumed a ton of soda (unlike Lexie).

    I would be stoked to win a copy of her cookbook! 😀 Eating a clean diet is important, especially for someone like me who suffers from MS.

    Thanks, Kelly, for this great opportunity!

    After finding out that I had auto immune thyroiditis, I have been on a journey of re-defining my diet and lifestyle. I am committed to being able to enjoy DELICIOUS food that is good for you and healing for your body. That is why I am interested to learn more about the “healthy meals packed with flavor, like Thai Meatballs,” and “french toast sticks” of course 🙂 I would love a copy of this book to get started!

    This came about from changing her diet to what worked for her body and sharing recipes on instagram. She wrote it to help people to get ‘creative’ in their kitchens while eating clean, healthy foods.
