Pumpkin and Honey Carrot Cake

Cake Ingredients:
3 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg
1 tsp. ginger
1/2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
1 cup melted coconut oil
1 cup brown sugar (packed)

2 Tbsp. Tu-Bees Pumpkin Spice Honey
1 cup sour cream
1 tsp. vanilla
1 cup grated carrots (freshly grated)
1 cup fresh pumpkin puree
4 large eggs (room temperature)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Grease and line two 9 inch pans OR three 8 inch pans with parchment paper.
In a small bowl, line it with paper towel and pour the pumpkin puree and carrots into the bowl and let the paper towel soak up a bit of the moisture.
In a large bowl, sift together all of your dry ingredients.  In a separate bowl, mix together all of your wet ingredients, including the pumpkin puree and carrots.
Add your dry ingredients to the wet ingredients with a spatula and fold them together just until they are combined.
Pour the cake mix evenly between your pans
Bake for 22-26 minutes.  Check often to make sure that the cake does not dry out.
Cool cakes, then ice with Pineapple & Honey Cream Cheese Frosting
