    Checked out the ingredients and they come up short>>> Canola oil - GMO, unless ORGANIC, Splenda - worse than gmo, I'd use sugar B4 that ingredient. So It's not as healthy as U think... So I'd use Grape Seed oil and Stevia, I'll let U know>>>
    This is a variation

        Wow! the comments are tough. Maybe change the name to healthier Carrot Cake.. but I agree Splenda is not something I would feed my family, nor canola oil. But I think that each person could make some adaptions that they feel comfortable with and think are healthy. It's a good basic recipe and looks delicious. Thanks for sharing it.

          I'm a diabetic, and it's really the carbs that matter more than sugar. From what I've read, canola oil isn't any healthier than using butter. I never bake with splenda either. Sorry...

            This sounds good to make. I haven't really tried to bake a carrot cake. This would be nice to follow.
