i typically won't eat carrots. But candied carrots....yummmm! Especially with a roast beef.

Simply toss the carrots in a bit of honey, salt them, then roast until they start to brown a little bit. Your stomach will thank your mouth for a week.

They're probably Big Jims. We bought them in Hatch, NM. They are hot, but not overwhelming.

I wanted to tell you thanks! This was amazing! I wasn't able to get anyone on board with the chiles, but your carrot cake recipe is awesome! I doubled it and used one cup of almond flour and one cup of coconut flour. I made them into cupcakes and they are so moist. It's getting easier to cook with substitutions now that I found things that taste better with a better texture. This one is going into the forever album!

Interesting approach. I have bags and bags of coconut flour and almost flour. We wont a $500 gift card to Whole Foods, and I spent it all on erythritol, coconut flour, and almond flour.

I have made a low carb pancake using coconut flour that isn't bad. Tastes a bit like a donut. But haven't tried blending it into regular flour type cakes.

But I can share a really good, gluten free (almost carb free) brownie that uses almond flour and flax meal.

Pretty please? I would love a tried and tested brownie recipe!

I seem to have better luck with the non grain flours so far, and the coconut really helps me to stretch my almond flour. It stores very well too. The one oddity about it is that it will absorb more moisture than other flours do, mixing it with the almond and flax seems to even that out though with their higher fat contents. So far so good. I have been missing carrot cake and this just made everybody's day. It helps to have some victories since there are still things that come out horrible. I think we have finally tipped the scales though.
Oh, and we love candied carrots, just about like that. Carrots are one of our staples around here.
