raw vegan carrot cake



2 C oat flour (made by processing rolled oats in a blender)


2 C pulp from 6-8 juiced carrots


1/4 tsp salt


2 C dates finely chopped or ground


1 C nuts chopped


2 tsp vanilla


3 TBsp honey


Other things I added in:


extra salt to taste


extra honey or agave to taste


lots of raisins


lots of cinnamon! (how could a carrot cake recipe NOT have cinnamon??)


1/2 C extra nuts


2 TBSp coconut oil




Mix all the ingredients together well. Knead and form into 2 rolls for slicing or layers for a cake. Make one layer of a cake & cover with frosting. Place second cake layer on top and cover whole cake with frosting.


Cream Cheese Frosting:


* 2 cups cashews, soaked (raw)

* 2 tablespoons lemon juice

* 2 tablespoons dates, soaked

* 1 tablespoon coconut butter

* 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (or half a vanilla bean)

* 1/4 teaspoon salt


Put all ingredients in a high-powered blender and process until smooth and creamy. (I will probably use my little food processor and a rubber spatula.).
