Raw Vegan Carrot Cake Cupcakes [Vegan]
What Ingredients Do You Need To Make Raw Vegan Carrot Cake Cupcakes [Vegan]
- 1 cup walnuts (not soaked)
- 1 cup dates
- 2 cups grated raw carrots, squeezed well through cheesecloth or with paper towel to remove as much excess moisture as possible (this is important!)
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp ginger
- Dash nutmeg
- 1/8 tsp sea salt
- 3/4 cup raisins
- 1 cup cashews, soaked 1+ hours
- 1/3 cup agave syrup
- Dash sea salt
- 1 tsp lemon juice
How To Make Raw Vegan Carrot Cake Cupcakes [Vegan]
- Process the dates and walnuts in a food processor fitted with the S blade till they are crumbly, but holding together.
- Add grated carrots and spices. Process till the mix has taken the form of a smooth “dough.”
- Add raisins and pulse to combine.
- For the frosting: rinse cashews and place in a food processor with agave, salt and lemon. Process until the mixture is well combined. With the motor running, add just enough water as the motor is running to get the frosting consistency you want.
- Push the carrot cake dough into six muffin tins or ramekins and refrigerate for about an hour. Remove from the fridge, and get frosting!
- Serve, snack, and savor.

I made these yesterday and they turned out fantastic! I am new and transforming into raw and this recipe has inspired me that I can do this and that raw food can be enjoyed.
On a side note I added 2 dessert spoons of cold pressed coconut oil to it and used honey instead of agave because my local did not sell agave.
Yummy Yummy Yummy
Great recipe! I made some substitutions–1/2 cup dried cranberries and 1/4 cup dried pineapple instead of the raisins and cloves with a dash of nutmeg instead of the ginger, because these were the ingredients I had on hand. I also added some orange zest to the "cream cheese".
