'Shredded' Carrot Cake

This carrot cake is not your typical carrot cake, it's shredded. And by shredded, I mean fit, and by fit, I mean healthy! This new Shredded Carrot Cake has only 328 calories per serving, frosting included! It's made with healthy, nutritional ingredients that still taste amazing! Have your cake and eat it too! Make it with me!

This Carrot Cake is a healthy spin on a traditional recipe! It has all the same great flavor and ingredients, just made a little lighter and a lower calorie! You still get those delicious spices and seasonings, bites of carrot, and cream cheese frosting! All the feelings, half the guilt!

The trick to this recipe is making sure that the cake bakes all the way through. There are a lot of wet ingredients in this recipe that need to bake up. Make sure that the cake doesn't jiggle or appear too soft when you take it out of the oven. Test the center with a toothpick and be sure it comes out clean!
