(source here)

2 C oat flour (made by processing rolled oats in a blender)
2 C pulp from 6-8 juiced carrots
1/4 tsp salt
2 C dates finely chopped or ground
1 C nuts chopped
2 tsp vanilla
3 TBsp honey
Other things I added in:
extra salt to taste
extra honey or agave to taste
lots of raisins
lots of cinnamon!  (how could a carrot cake recipe NOT have cinnamon??)
1/2 C extra nuts
2 TBSp coconut oil
Cream Cheese Frosting:
2 cups cashews, soaked (raw)
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons dates, soaked
1 tablespoon coconut butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract (or half a vanilla bean)
1/4 teaspoon salt
Directions:
For Cake:
Mix all the ingredients together well.  Knead and form into 2 rolls for slicing or layers for a cake.  Make one layer of a cake & cover with frosting.  Place second cake layer on top and cover whole cake with frosting.
For Frosting:
Put all ingredients in a high-powered blender and process until smooth and creamy. (I will probably use my little food processor and a rubber spatula.).
