    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.
