Vegan GF Carrot Cake Parfaits

Posted by in Cakes, Desserts, Easter | 0 comments
















Hello & Happy Thursday!!








I had made upwards of 6 Easter recipes and although I loved them all, there was so many that I didn’t get to share each one. For me personally, I love all things carrot cake and it’s become a staple flavor that you can find it year round at the market and on menus, so that being said.. 


I decided to share it anyways, because it’s just that good!


So what is a parfait? Well, a parfait can be yogurt or cake based, or anything based for that matter and features layers. You could consider this a trifle, but for trifles I envision the large glass serving dish rather than the individual portions. 


While I love a good cake recipe, icing baked goods is not in my skill set as it takes practice and precision to achieve a flawless look. That being said, parfaits are a perfect solution as they are just so effortless!  You can make messy layers and it still doesn’t detract from the final product. 







What I love about this recipe is, everything! It’s gluten free, comprised of almond flour, packed with carrots, no refined sugar, uses maple syrup, packs coconut whip instead of icing, quick, easy, perf for spring, fun to make with kids, and non vegan approved!




If you’re searching for that perfect gf vegan carrot cake, this is it!
