Vegan Raw Chia Carrot Cake
This Recipe Is:

By
WebMD Recipe from Foodily.com

Ingredients
  • 1 3/4 pounds
    grated carrots (eye ball this from a 2 lb. bag of whole carrots and chop in a food processor, or get pre-grated)
  • 1 1/2 cups
    chopped walnuts
  • 1/2 cup
    plus 2 tablespoons chia seeds
  • 1 cup
    chopped dried mangoes
  • 1 cup
    packed chopped dates
  • orange, zest and juice (just under 1/2 a cup of orange juice)
  • 1 teaspoon
    vanilla extract
  • 4 tablespoons
    agave nectar
  • 1 teaspoon
    ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon
    salt
Instructions
  1. If starting with whole carrots, process to very small pieces or if you have the energy grate them by hand. Stir together the carrots, walnuts, 1/2 cup of chia seeds, mangoes, and orange zest. In a food processor, puree the chopped dates, orange juice, 2 tablespoons of chia seeds, vanilla extract, agave nectar, cinnamon and salt. Mix the puree into the carrot mixture- you may need to wash your hands and get in there to get the job done!
  2. Line a 8 inch loaf pan with plastic wrap. It doesn't have to be perfect because the weight of the batter will weigh the plastic down into the corners. Refrigerate the cake overnight. I didn't plan the timing correctly so I just stuck it in the freezer for a couple hours, which turned out fine but I imagine overnight is slightly more solid.
  3. Turn the cake over on to a plate, and garnish with orange slices and extra carrot peel.
