Cream Cheese Frosting
Servings: donuts
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Add eggs to a large bowl and beat well with a stand mixer or hand mixer.
  2. Add in tahini, coconut oil, vanilla, and maple syrup and beat together.

  4. Slowly add flour mixture into wet ingredients and mix just until combined. Stir in 1 cup of shredded carrots.

  8. Top with optional ingredients such as sprinkles, or coconut flakes.
Recipe Notes

Coconut Butter: Coconut butter is more similar to peanut butter than real butter. You can purchase coconut butter pre-made, or you can easily make it, but adding unsweetened coconut flakes to a food processor. Process the flakes until a butter-like texture begins to form. You may need to scrape down the sides as this texture change takes place, this will take approximately 3 minutes.

Lavender: Dried lavender needs to be ground down to a powder before incorporating into ganache, this can be done with a coffee grinder or other small processor.
