    FLKeysJen's Note:

    It's a chocolate cake with the health benefits of eating a whole carrot per serving! This low fat makeover of Chocolate Carrot Cake with Chocolate Cream Cheese Icing has only 19% of the fat and 14% of the cholesterol, but all of the carrot cake-like texture with coconut and walnuts. To us, this tastes much better than the original which has a strong flavor of vegetable oil. If you think you may be tempted to overindulge, a half recipe fits perfectly in an 8-inch square pan.
