Serves 4-6

Ingredients

Cake 
1 cup carrots (chopped)
2 cups walnuts
1/2 cup raisins
¼ cup dates
1/2 cup dried shredded coconut
1 tablespoon sunflower seeds
1/8 cup agave nectar
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 tablespoon almond milk

Icing 

1 cup cashews
2 tablespoons lime juice
1/8 cup agave nectar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon almond milk

Directions:

1. Place carrots in food processor and pulse until chunky.

2. Add remaining cake ingredients to food processor. Process briefly and slowly, stopping to monitor. Do not over-process. Mixture should be well-blended but still “chunky” (not a paste).

3. Press cake mixture into cake pan or square baking dish.

4. Combine icing ingredients in high-speed blender and blend until smooth and creamy. Ice cake.

6. Refrigerate for at least two hours before serving.
