I love carrot cake! But a few years ago, my oven broke down, so I came up with this version of carrot cake that doesn’t require baking! And it’s incredible! Super easy to make, this Healthy Carrot Cake No-Bake Slice is packed with the goodness of fresh carrots, spices, nuts and coconut, yet tastes so delicious you wouldn’t even know it’s healthy!
