This healthy carrot cake recipe isn't even technically carrot cake. Created by Izy Hossack at Top With Cinnamon, the lemon-frosted 'Not-Carrot Carrot Cake' is perfect for people who have allergies or dietary restrictions because it is gluten and dairy free, plus there is no added sugar and it can easily be made vegan if you only consume plant-based foods.

If you are trying to avoid sugar, this healthy carrot cake alternative is a tasty option. Instead of carrots, the treat utilizes butternut squash. Even though this is an unusual ingredient to incorporate in a dessert, you will get an extra dose of vegetables. You will also need mango, shredded coconut, ground almonds, cashews, dates, ricotta cheese and other items.
