Paleo Apple Carrot Kugel (nut-free and egg-free)

Kugel is a traditional jewish pudding or casserole. It is most commonly made with egg noodles or potatoes. I apologize for butchering the recipe, but I was asked to make a similar dish that complies with several dietary restrictions and that also hides a few vegetables in it. My paleo kugel variation of this recipe is made with shredded carrots, sweet potato and apples. I made two recipes, one uses almond flour and eggs and the second one uses coconut flour and gelatin instead of eggs. Although kugels are typically a side dish, this one is more like a dessert or a breakfast treat.

For other egg-free treat ideas try my raw coconut macaroons,  banana muffins, raw apple “‘larabar”, raw “rice” pudding, or my chia seed energy bar
