Whole Wheat Carrot Cake with Agave Nectar and Cream Cheese Frosting
(no ratings)

This cake is a little denser than a traditional cake but it boasts just 4.8 grams of sugar, balanced by 4 grams of protein and roughly 200 calories per piece. I modified a recipe to accommodate my diabetic mom on Easter. Omit the raisins and cut down on 2 grams of sugar and 9 calories per serving.

I really like agave nectar, it is low on the GI chart and has a wonderful flavor. I could not find a carrot cake recipe that used agave nectar, so I created this one. I hope everyone likes it.
