We are getting very close to completing the design of my new book, A New View of Healthy Eating. This weekend while completing the design of the Desserts, Snacks, and Superfood section, I  got re-excited about some of the healthy, simple, mouthwatering recipes. I’m happy to share with you, for the first time, the raw carrot cake recipe in the book, which I initially prepared while visiting my parents in Cocoa Beach. Enjoy!

Excerpt from A New View of Healthy Eating           

Carrot cake has been a favorite of mine for decades. As much as I love the aromatherapy of cooking raisins with cinnamon and nutmeg for a baked carrot cake, I love the simplicity and freshness of a raw version of carrot cake.

SIMPLE INGREDIENTS

  • 1 cup dates, pitted and soaked for 1 hour in water, then rough chopped
  • 2 cups carrots, shredded
  • 1 ½ cups apple, minced
  • 1 ½ cups raw cashews or pecans, ground into a fine meal
  • ½ tsp cinnamon, freshly ground
  • ½ tsp nutmeg, freshly ground
  • ½ tsp sea salt

SIMPLE STEPS

  1. Gather mise en place.
  2. Soak dates.
  3. Place all ingredients into mixing bowl and combine gently unit the mixture forms a ball.
  4. Press dough into springform pan or bowl.
  5. Refrigerate for an hour.
  6. Serve with sorbet, fresh fruit, or herbs.
