Carrot Cake/Banana Bread Fusion! (GF Vegan, oil free, refined sugar free)

Carrot Cake Batter

90g large carrots
60g medjool dates
3 large ripe bananas
1 tbs ceylon cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla powder/extract

Soak your dates for 5 minutes while peeling the bananas and carrots. In a food processor, blitz the carrots to a fine mince. Pit the dates and add to the food processor with your bananas, cinnamon, vanilla, and blend until smooth. You can easily make this a smoothie by adding some coconut water, orange juice, water, or non-dairy milk.

Carrot Cake/Banana Bread Baby
Serves: 2-4 | Time: 1 hour

2 cups Carrot Cake Batter
1 cup gluten-free flour*
1/4 cup organic raisins
1.5 tsp raw coconut sugar
1.5 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/3 cup water

* I used oat flour but brown rice also works well

Preheat your oven to 375F.
In a small mixing bowl, mix the dry ingredients. Scoop up two cups of the batter with a measuring cup and mix it in with a fork.
Add your water and fold into the batter until the consistency is cake-like.
Add half of your batter to an un-greased 8x8 ceramic or glass dish lined with parchment/baking paper. Sprinkle the raisins in. Add the rest of the batter and smooth with a spatula if necessary.
Sprinkle the coconut sugar on top. Place in the oven and bake for 45 minutes. Turn off the heat, crack the door, and let cool before cutting.
It is normal for the cake to be somewhat moist and dense, which is typical of a banana bread.

Enjoy :)
