No Bake Carrot Cake

Ingredients (makes 20)

  • 1 cup pitted dates
  • 1 cup mixed nuts (cashews, walnuts, hazelnuts, almonds)
  • 3 cups grated carrot (about 2 large carrots)
  • 1 cup shredded coconut
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon cocoa or cacao powder
  • ½ cup thick Greek yoghurt, to serve
  • zest of orange and ½ orange, to garnish (or use crystallised ginger)


  1. In a food processor or high-powered blender, place first six ingredients and blend until mixture can be pressed together to form a ball.
  2. Line a baking tray or dish with plastic wrap. Press carrot mixture into tray, cover and chill for at least 1 hour.
  3. When chilled and firm, cut out rounds from carrot mixture using a small glass or cookie cutter (about 5cm diameter), until all mixture is used up.
  4. When ready to serve, place a small dollop of yoghurt on top of each cake. Garnish with orange zest.
