  1. Valorie

    What is coconut sap and where can I buy this product? This cake looks divine. Carrot cake is one of our family favorites.

    • I got mine from whole foods, it’s a sweet low glycemic sweetener with a mild flavour. You can sub with maple syrup, honey or just leave that step out. I left the sap out last time and it was still lovely (and very comparable to a regular old wheat flour one)

  2. This sounds delicious! Can you tell me how almond flour is for diabetes? I am going to make this for a friend, and it looks like an absolutely wonderful recipe just from the ingredients, thanks.
