Raw Carrot Cake Squares

Makes 8 Squares

Dates and nuts are two snacks that we ALWAYS have to hand, luckily, they are the perfect base for delicious energy balls and bars. We’ve decided to jazz this up and took inspiration from everyone’s all-time favourite bake…CARROT CAKE! Great to make with little ones to keep their hands busy and tummies happy.

Method

In a food processor, blitz the dates, nuts and coconut until the mix comes together, tip into a bowl and add the coconut, coconut oil, crated carrot, spices and mix well

Either roll into balls, or like us press into a small brownie tin and refrigerate until firm

Once set, mix together the frosting and spread over the base, chill again for 30 minutes before cutting and enjoying
