Naturally sweetened with dates, this carrot cake is dense, super delicious, and nourishing for the mind, body and soul. The added cashew cream on top gives it a creamy texture, and it definitely makes for a great snack, dessert, or meal if you would like ūüôā Carrots are a wonderful source of Vitamin A, and because of its simplicity, this recipe is also gut-friendly for all. Be kind to others, and always remember to be kind to yourself.‚ô°

I hope that you enjoy this recipe, and if you do recreate it, I would love to see your  beautiful creations on my instagram, @jaslipska !
