Carob Cake Amazingness

I have been home all day studying and I decided I needed some "junk" food so I took a little break and whipped up some raw vegan energy to get me through the rest of my studying...
This cake is the yummiest thing I have ever tasted, I can't decide whether to call it a cake, or a pie or a piece of awesomeness...

For the crust/cake/cookie type part:
2 cups of walnuts
1 cup of shredded coconut
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
pinch of salt
1/4 cup of agave nectar

Put all the ingredients in a food processor. (If you don't have a food processor put the nuts in a bag and hit it with a cup till its mashed up like I did in all the other recipes and then mix everything together! If you have other creative ways to destruct things with out a machine post it in the comments!)
Then put all the ingredients in a pan and shape it into a cake!

For the Frosting/Filling thing:
3 majooled dates (soak for an hour to get it soft)
1 ripe Avocado
1/2 cup of carob powder

Put all the ingredients in a food processor for an easy mixing or do what I did: put the dates and avocado in a bowl and mash it till it's super mixed then add the carob powder and mix until it looks all yum and chocolaty! 

Frost your cake and enjoy! 
Keep it refrigerated.

Back to cramming with Jon...

  1. Creative, although I am not sure it should be called cake. Cake is a fattening mess with chocolate and lots of frosting that you gobble down, and then regret later.
