Yum!! These raw carrot cake bites are so delicious and amazingly good for you!! I was kindly sent some lovely ingredients from two of our favourite brands and I came up with this lovely super easy recipe. Made with our Tiger Nut Powder it is gluten-free and so moist, it tastes exactly like carrot cake but even better! I used some of Dr.Gaye’s amazing super golden powder which I absolutely love! It’s a mix of turmeric, coconut and gorgeous chai spices which have lots of ayurvedic health benefits.
I also used some of the Elements for Life raw organic Peruvian cacao and some cacao butter – yum! Raw chocolate is good for you, and it is so much easier to make than you might imagine – if you want to see how just have a look here at Elements for Life’s foolproof raw chocolate recipe and video.
A great little easy to make treat for the festive season!
1 carrot, reserve a spoon of grated carrot for topping
2-3 tablespoons coconut oil
handful cashew nuts
100g Tiger Nut Flour
1 tablespoon Dr.Gayes Super Golden
for the chocolate;
25g Raw cacao powder
30g Raw cacao butter
1-2 tsp healthy sweetener – I used maple syrup
Place the ingredients (except the chocolate ingredients) in a processor and pulse lightly, you want to mix well but leave lots of texture.
Shape into small balls and chill.
Then make sure all utensils are dry or the chocolate will separate.
Place a clean bowl over a saucepan of hot water (bain marie) making sure the bottom of the bowl does not touch the water
Grate the cacao butter, add to the bowl & allow to melt slowly. Don’t keep the water boiling, turn the heat off and just give it a quick blast every so often if necessary.
Add the cacao powder and stir.
Then add a little sweetener to your taste.
take the balls out of the fridge and gently spoon the mixture over to coat the balls. You might need to do this a couple of times until you have a thick enough layer.
Top with a little grated carrot.
Pop back in the fridge again to chill.
Try not to eat them all at once!
This will keep for 5-7 days in the fridge, and will also freeze well.
