Paleo Raw Carrot Cake.

Carrot cake is definitely one of our all time favourite sweet treats! We’ve created a Paleo Raw Carrot Cake recipe and it’s all kinds of amazing!!

If you like super duper sweet sweet treats then you might want to add a few extra dates. We were trying to keep this lower in natural sugars too! Let us know what you think! WARNING: the frosting is actually too scrummy  and we almost forgot to put it on the cakes before we ate it all! You might also like our paleo hot cross bun recipe or raw choc raspberry cake recipe or how about this one!

Always merrymaking,

for the cake
  1. 2 carrots grated
  2. 1 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  3. 1 cup walnuts crushed
  4. 1 cup pitted dates (soaked in boiling water for at least 10 minutes)
  5. 1/4 cup coconut oil
  6. 2 tsp. cinnamon
for the frosting
  1. 1/2 cup raw cashews (soaked in water for at least 15 minutes, the longer the creamier the frosting, we recommend overnight)
  2. 1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  3. 1/4 cup coconut oil
  4. 1 lemon juiced
  5. 1 tbs. maple syrup (or preferred natural sweetener!)
  1. In a large mixing bowl add the carrots, coconut, walnuts, cinnamon, mix well.
  2. In a food processor/blender whiz the drained dates and coconut oil until smooth.
  3. Add this to the mixing bowl. Mix really well until combined (it's easiest to use your hands here!).
  4. Divide the mixture between 6 silicon muffin cases and press them down really firmly.
  5. Place these in to the fridge for around 10-15 minutes.
Meanwhile, let's make the frosting
  1. In your food processor whiz the drained cashews, coconut, coconut oil, lemon juice and maple until smooth. It will take around 5 minutes.
  2. Turn out the cakes and ice with spoonfuls of frosting, top with a sprinkle of cinnamon and an extra walnut!
  3. Wa-lah!
