There’s something about eating a slice of carrot cake with makes you feel just that little bit healthier. 

I’m a huge advocate of hiding veggies in desserts, but especially in all things carrot cake. You’ve seen it in this flourless carrot breakfast cake, carrot cake protein bars and even a single serving healthy carrot cake mug cake

Today’s recipe for a healthy carrot cake comes with a twist- It requires ZERO baking.

Are carrots really in a carrot cake? 

Well…I’d hope so.

In all honesty, this isn’t such a far-fetched question. Having a quick look at some supermarket boxed mixes, I was shocked to see ‘natural coloring’ and zero carrots. 

In most recipes, you will definitely find some shredded carrots in there. Granted, it isn’t really there for the taste, but more for the color. 

What are the ingredients for carrot cake?

A traditional carrot cake typically includes flour, butter, oil, walnuts, cinnamon, nutmeg and of course, shredded carrots.

In my healthy no bake raw carrot cake recipe, you will find some similarities, but also many differences.

The 100% raw paleo vegan carrot cake- A blend of raw nuts, dates, spices, and shredded coconut.

The ketogenic low carb carrot cake- Coconut flour, smooth cashew butter, a sticky sweetener and shredded carrots. 

Speaking of ingredients in a carrot cake, I personally believe that the KEY to any good healthy carrot cake recipe is to have a delicious frosting!

How do you make a healthy frosting for carrot cake?

I’ve provided three different frosting options, depending on your dietary preferences-

Protein Vanilla Frosting– Simply mix together 2 scoops of your favorite vanilla protein powder (check out this page for tested recommendations) with a liquid of choice until a thick, smooth batter remains. For an ultra creamy frosting, use canned coconut milk.

Dairy Free Vegan Paleo Cream Cheese Frosting– Using a high-speed blender or a good quality food processor, combine the ingredients listed on the recipe card. 

Keto Low Carb Sugar Free Cream Cheese Frosting- Combine 340 grams (12 oz) of softened cream cheese of choice with 1/2 cup butter and 1/2 cup this keto-approved icing sugar and beat using a stick mixer or hand mixer until combined and smooth.

Ingredients

For the Paleo Vegan No Bake Carrot Cake

For the Ketogenic Low Carb Sugar Free Carrot Cake

For the Paleo Vegan Cream Cheese Frosting

Instructions

For the Paleo Vegan No Bake Carrot Cake

  • In a high-speed blender or food processor, combine your nuts and blend until a crumbly texture remains. Add the rest of the ingredients and continue blending, scraping down the sides regularly to ensure it is fully incorporated. The batter should result in a 'dough'. 
  • Line an 8 x 8-inch pan with parchment paper. Transfer the batter to the lined pan and press firmly into place. Refrigerate.

For the Ketogenic Low Carb Sugar Free Carrot Cake

  • In a large mixing bowl, add your coconut flour and shredded carrots and set aside.
  • In a microwave-safe bowl or stovetop, combine your cashew butter with sticky sweetener and heat until melted. Whisk together and pour into the dry mixture. Mix until a dough is formed. If the batter is too crumbly, add liquid of choice until desired texture remains.
  • Line an 8 x 8-inch pan with parchment paper. Transfer the batter into it and press firmly into place. Refrigerate. 

For the Paleo Vegan Cream Cheese Frosting

  • Blend all the ingredients until a thick and creamy frosting remains. Adjust sweetness to desired preference. 
  • Top the Paleo Vegan No Bake Carrot Cake with this frosting. For the ketogenic frosting and protein frosting, see post content for instructions. 

Notes

* I used a monk fruit sweetened syrup. For a 100% refined sugar-free sticky sweetener, use maple syrup, agave nectar or brown rice syrup. Honey can also be used. 
** Adjust accordingly- You may need more or less, depending on the coconut flour you use. 
*** To soak cashews, add boiling water to cashews and let soak for 45 minutes before blending.
**** If you prefer a non-sweet frosting, omit. 
Healthy Paleo Vegan No Bake Carrot Cake (Keto, Sugar Free) should be kept refrigerated, especially if frosted. If left un-frosted, they can keep at room temperature, in a sealed container.

  1. Funny enough, I LOVED carrot cake even before I thought about eating my vegetables! Still, I agree, it’s important to eat your veggies whenever and wherever you can, even in a slice of cake! Love the idea of creating these healthy carrot cake bars just to make things sweeter. I’d probably eat a whole batch of these in one sitting though–whoops!

  2. Hi, Wondering For the Ketogenic Low Carb Sugar Free Carrot Cake is the 1-2 tbsp shredded carrots only 1 – 2 tablespoons carrot? Thanks. Regards Jenny
