Raw Goodness – Carrot Cake…

My mouth is watering as I write this post. Last night, I made REAL carrot cake. Raw, uncooked, carrot cake. Wowwiiie! Talk about sinfully delcious – and NO guilt! Here’s the recipe…

  • 7 peeled carrots chopped into small pieces
  • 1 cup of almonds (soaked overnight (I didn’t have time to soak mine)
  • 1 cup or so of raisins
  • 1 cup or so of shredded coconut
  • 1 splash of vanilla extract
  • 1 cup of honey or agave nectar
  • 3 tablespoons of coarse bran (or psyllium)
  • juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 1 dash of pink sea salt
  • 1/3 cup of ground flax seeds
  • Dashes of cinnamon, all spice, nutmeg to taste

Process the almonds and carrots in the food processor. Transfer to bowl and gently combine the carrots, almonds, coconut, raisins, sea salt, lemon, flax seeds, spices, honey, and vanilla (all ingredients). Press into a 9 or 10″ springform pan. Let sit in the refrigerator for 2 hours until set. Add icing (see below) to the top and cover with shredded coconut.

For the icing:

  • 1 cup of raw honey
  • juice of 1/2 a lemon
  • splash of vanilla extract
  • 2 cups of soaked almonds (I didn’t soak mine)

Process in food processor and spread carefully onto center of cake and blend outwards. Cover up the edges with shredded coconut.

Outrageously delicious!
Outrageously raw!

Enjoy!
