Carrot Cake Substitutions - your opinion please

My mother has a tried and true carrot cake recipe that we have both made for years. It is very simple and delicious.

I have an open bag of grated coconut that I am trying to use up and I was thinking of substituting some of the carrots with coconut. The recipe calls for 3 cups grated carrots - I was going to switch out 1/2 - 1 cup and cut down slightly on the sugar as the coconut is sweetened.

What do you think?
