Raw Gluten-Free Vegan Carrot Cake


Yum! These were delicious. Raw, gluten-free, and of course vegan! I have lots left in my freezer to take out and thaw when I feel like raw carrot cake. This was a Pinterest find if you want to check out the recipe. The Sweet Life’s Raw Carrot Bites look a lot harder and smoothly cut compared to mine, but that is because I was too impatient to let them freeze long enough and was a bit quick to try them. Didn’t matter though seeing as they tasted good!

Very happy that I tried the recipe, and hope you will, too. I have not had carrot cake in a long time, but this seemed so different to anything else I had made that I was quite curious. I always tend to go for the chocolate recipes ;). I am used to raw desserts which can be a bit different sometimes and would really love to know what others think. I debated about using half the cashew icing although it really doesn’t seem like too much. Please let me know if you make these or have already made them.

Do you have a favourite raw dessert recipe of your own or someone else’s that you often make?


Plus, a HUGE thank you to everyone who has voted for Arohanui Vegan Love in the Top 25 Vegan and Vegetarian Moms, especially if you have been committed to voting every day. We really do appreciate it. We were at #7 not long ago and are down by 2 again. Every vote counts as this is such a long competition. Hope I am not bothering anyone too much by continuing to mention it, but I would love to stay toward the top and have had a lot of people ask to be reminded every day. If you feel like sharing or tweeting as well that would be awesome, too. Thank you. We made some more yummy cookies and a silverbeet green smoothie if you want to check out our photos on Facebook.

  1. These look totally scrumptious! I just checked out the recipe. I would love to make them.
    I have a few favorite raw desserts- a blueberry ‘cheesecake’, chocolate tarts, brownies, chocolate ‘ice cream’.
    I am going to do a post on the brownies and tarts next week. I used to make raw chocolates, but I haven’t made any for a while.

  2. Like! Like! LIke! This is now on my list of things to make! My favourite raw dessert to make is “Congo Bars (Raisin and Nut Fudge with Vanilla and Coconut” from Sarma Melngailis’ book “Living Raw Food”. It’s hard to believe that these bars are raw.

  3. I’m still voting for ya πŸ˜‰ These carrot cake treats look delicious…. carrot cake is one of my favourites – particularly when it is wholesome and healthful like this one!
