Directions:

Peel and chop up your Carrots. Add all of your Carrot Cake ingredients into a blender or food processor.

Blend or process everything together for around 1-2 minutes.

Take out 2 cake pans and coat them with some non-stick cooking spray. Evenly distribute your cake mix into the pans.

Bake them on 350°F/176°C for 25:00-30:00.

Make your Protein Frosting by adding all of those ingredients into a bowl and mixing everything together until your frosting thickens up.

Once your cakes cool coat one cake with half of the frosting, put the other cake on top of that, and then coat the top cake with the rest of the frosting.

Sprinkle your Unsweetened Shredded Coconut, optional Walnuts (or any other nut), and a couple slices of a Carrot on top! Mouthgasm!
