Carrot Cake Madeleines

Thanksgiving cooking can be overwhelming, so making dessert ahead of time is the way to go! We are sharing easy to make recipes for this holiday season and all these are gluten-free, sugar-free and dairy-free. These small size treats are big enough to end a meal on a sweet healthy note, and can be made ahead of time.

In this recipe, the idea is to avoid, sugar, gluten & dairy, substituting sugar can be a bit tricky because the taste of sugar is really unique, so we are going to be using a balance of different alternative sweeteners to achieve a nice flavor, good texture & being mindful about nutritional value. Enjoy!

2 Tablespoons coconut oil
½ Cup almond milk
½ cup apple sauce
1 Cup Grated carrots
1 Teaspoon lemon juice

Dry ingredients:
½ Cup almond meal
2 Cups Gluten free flour
1 Teaspoon Baking powder
1 Teaspoon baking soda

On a different bowl mix together all dry ingredients.
