Dawn’s Carrot Halva

By Dawn Ross


  • 250g grated carrots
  • ¼ cup almonds, ground (i.e. measure them out, then grind them)
  • ¼ cup cashews, ground (as above) ***
  • 1 tbsp Monk Fruit Powder, or 1-2 drops liquid stevia
  • ⅓ cup raisins****
  • 1 tsp cardamom powder (grind the seeds, then remove the husks)
  • ½ tsp cinnamon


  1. Grate carrots into a bowl and add ground almonds and cashews (this can be made in a food processor or you can use almond paste and cashew paste instead).
  2. Add the monk fruit powder, raisins, cardamom and cinnamon. Mix together until well incorporated.
  3. With clean hands, roll the “dough” into balls about one inch in diameter.
  4. Place on parchment paper and set in the fridge for at least 2 hours.

*** Not Hippocrates approved. Why? Cashews contain a toxin similar to poison ivy. Why not use more almonds instead?
**** Not Hippocrates approved. Why? Raisins are a fruit, so in this recipe along with the carrots, it’s not good food combining. Consider this a treat!
