In need of a healthy take on carrot cake!

I somehow got volunteered to make our boss a carrot cake for her birthday this Thursday. This is her absolute favorite kind, but I have never made any kind of carrot cake before.

This is compounded by the fact that the boss lady is watching her caloric intake.

I pretty much decided that the cream cheese frosting is out and that I will cook the cake in a bunt pan and make a simple sugar glaze to put over it. But I still need a recipe! I did some poking around on the internet and seen recipes call for a ton of eggs or for lots of butter.

Anyone know of a tasty carrot cake recipe that I could spin as "healthy"?

Other details:
- Boss hates chocolate.
- I only have a Walmart near me to shop at.
