Just by looking at me you wouldn’t think it but as with most people in Trinidad we’re all mixed up and on my dad’s side we have some East Indian roots. And although I mightn’t want it everyday, they’re times when Indian cuisine is something that I crave and one of the things I love next to Pholourie is Saheena!

If you’re like me, the hardest part of gluten free eating is breakfast. And sometimes, you want something fresh, homemade and delicious, not out of the freezer section of the grocery store (which is where most of the gluten free breads can be found.) But as you know most gluten free breads or similar items usually take a few hours to make and require quite a few ingredients that makes it difficult to make on a whim.
What do you get when you combine my two favorite loaf cakes?!?!? You get this super delicious and moist Banana Carrot Cake!! If there are two things I love in the world of desserts it’s a good carrot cake filled with nuts and cinnamon and the other is a slice of banana bread with lots of cinnamon and a ton of bananas to keep it moist. So to me it was only fitting to combine the two flavors and create this super awesome, best of both worlds cake!!
When my Friends at Bobs Red Mill Trinidad asked me to create a recipe using Arrowroot, I must admit I was stumped for a second. Mostly I use Arrowroot to bind my burgers, thicken my soups and as a flour in my blends, but never as the main ingredient.
So what’s a girl to do!?!? Troll Pinterest! (lol…my place of inspiration)
Sigh…But that didn’t help much and I had to go back to my recipe drawing board and think again. I played around with different things and came up with a few ideas until it hit me….why not make Arrowroot Coconut Wraps instead of Tapioca Coconut Wraps.
