Raw Carrot Cake Recipe
Before your eyes glaze over and I lose your attention, I just need to say one thing: Don’t let the word raw scare you.
Raw carrot cake simply means that it’s not baked. If you like snitching a spoonful of dough before you bake cake, cookies, or brownies, I’m pretty sure you’ll like this recipe.
I discovered this recipe on My Darling Lemon Thyme earlier this summer, when I was in the mood for carrot cake but didn’t want to turn the oven on. But rest assured, I will be making this one again even when it’s cold outside. It’s refreshingly different and totally satisfies my sweet tooth. And it’s a breeze to make. Just put the ingredients into a food processor, pulse a few times – and voila! Dessert in 5 minutes.
In case you’re wondering, this carrot recipe is part of the Carrot Week series, which feature three budget-friendly carrot recipes. I’ve been a little obsessed with carrots lately because they’re cheap, delicious, and can be prepared a million different ways. This healthy dessert recipe is the final in the series.
