Healthy Carrot Cake No-Bake Slice

This slice tastes so delicious you wouldn't even know it's healthy! Our Wholefood Night Markets Speaker Rebecca Gawthorne (AKA @nourish_naturally) shared this with us. It's packed with the goodness of fresh carrots, spices, nuts and coconut!

Makes 15 serves

Ingredients:

Base Layer

  • 2 large carrots, peeled and roughly chopped or grated
  • 3/4 cup walnuts
  • 1/2 cup medjool dates, seeds removed
