Healthier Gluten Free Carrot Cake

My healthier Gluten Free version of my carrot cake went live on this Migraine support site. They are gathering Migraine and Gluten free recipes to make a Migraine safe cookbook. If you have a recipe to submit you can do so-there is a link at the bottom of the page how to sign in and proceed from there.
(PS-if you don’t suffer from Migraines or have a nut allergy, add 1 cup of chopped walnuts to the cake batter when you mix in the additional ingredients.)

When you suffer from Chronic Migraines it’s hard to find ready to eat items at the store. I have been finding ways to alter traditional recipes to make them healthier and Migraine friendly. I added the gluten-free because my husband has Celiac, and the Gluten free flour mix I use is Red Bob Mills All Purpose Baking Flour Mix. I think I got that title right-I’m trying to type w/o my glasses. Fibro and Migraine Fog double time today. I cannot find my glasses anywhere nor can I remember where I last had them. So I’m typing this 1/2 blind. But instead of using vegetable oil I use unsweetened applesauce. For the sugar sometimes I will use raw sugar. I make sure everything I use does not have a hidden source of Soy or MSG as it’s a trigger, as well as nuts-that is why I omitted them in the original recipe but if that is not your trigger adding walnuts makes it tastier and I will finely chop some and cover the top of the frosting before serving. Then I know I can’t have any or leave a section clear of nuts so I can. Nuts have a high source of natural occurring Tyramine and if you follow the NHF or Diamond Clinic Low Tyramine Diet for migraine prevention nuts is on the list of no-no’s.

But even with the applesauce this cake is moist. I use an oblong cake pan with a clear lid when storing. It must be refrigerated after the 1st day as there are preservatives or chemicals in there to give it a longer shelf life. I hope you enjoy it. My husband and daughter do as does my best friend.
