Ingredients

2 1/4 cups blanched almond flour

3/4 cup arrowroot starch

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon sea salt

1 teaspoon baking soda

2 tablespoons olive oil or coconut oil

In a medium bowl whisk together blanched almond flour, arrowroot starch, ground cinnamon, sea salt, and baking soda. Set aside. In a large bowl mix together olive oil, coconut sugar, eggs, carrots, almond milk, and apple cider vinegar Stir the whisked dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. Fold in the raisins, if desired.
