The Way to BE

Sugar-Free Carrot Cake/Muffin Recipe


As you start on The Body Ecology Diet, we hope to introduce you to several alternative sweeteners that can provide the sweet taste you crave without the harmful effects of sugar. Golden LAKANTO® is an ideal zero-calorie baking companion and is also safe for diabetics.

Body Ecology is first and foremost a system of health and healing, but eating for your health doesn’t mean you have to feel deprived. While eating the Body Ecology Way could help to relieve and manage a number of chronic conditions, including depression, weight problems, premature aging, Candida, hormonal imbalance, and autoimmune disorders, we still believe in enjoying foods that are as tasty as they are nourishing. We’ve even left room for dessert.

After more than 30 years of studying, and then bridging the gap between Chinese medicine and traditional Western medicine, what evolved into the Body Ecology Way is now a very effective method for addressing the root cause of disease.

    I tried the carrot muffin recipe with gluten free almond and coconut flours and they were awful -muffins would not bind and tasted like flour. Wasted all those wonderful organic ingredients only to throw it all out. I'm usually very successful at baking but new to gluten free
    Has anyone had success with that recipe and if so what gluten free flour did you use?

  • Anne Kendra

    What is the best gluten free flour to use with this recipe? We are on phase 1 of the B.E.D. so we have to be careful. Also, I don't think we can have the pecans or walnuts in phase 1 either right?
