Blueberry Carrot Cake Parfaits

I looooove these things. These little jars of joy. These parfaits that make you feel like you are the naughtiest b*tch to hit the paleo scene. Oh how I love them. And you will too.

So have you ever had one of those workouts that make you feel like your muscles are going to rip out of your legs? Or that your lungs have begun to make mucusy balls of fire that you incessantly cough up for hours post workout? Well I had one of those workouts yesterday at CrossFit Broadway. After doing 2 min rounds of 200m sprints with as many hang squat cleans right after, I thought I was going to pass out. I don’t know why I loved it, but I totally did. Maybe because I got a pedicure right after with 3 awesome ladies. But the workout did put a cramp in my style…I couldn’t fall asleep for a good hour because my body was so achy. I don’t really know why I told you this story but it was a big part of my day, ok?!?

Moving on. I have big plans this weekend. Big. I plan on going to Red Rocks to workout Saturday morning then going straight to the pool to get my tan on. If you’ve never heard of Red Rocks, google that sh*t. It’s one of the greatest places on earth. Then Sunday I plan on going to the farmers market and trying out a ton of food trucks. That’s actually all I got. Sorry for the terrible stories today. My b.


Blueberry Carrot Cake Parfaits

  • Yield: 3-4 1x




  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Shred carrots as thin as possible. Place in large bowl.
  3. Add almond butter and eggs and mix well.
  4. Then add honey, protein powder (or coconut flour), cinnamon, baking powder and salt and mix well.
  5. Fold in chocolate chips.
  6. Grease an 8×8 glass baking dish with coconut oil, pour batter into the dish and place in oven. Bake for 35 minutes or until the top of the cake has a nice crust to it.
  7. Let cool before cutting in bite sized cubes.
  8. Once carrot cake is cooled and diced, scoop out the coconut cream that has hardened and risen to the top of the can. (Leave behind the coconut water to use for protein drinks/shakes).
  9. Place coconut cream in a bowl and mix with fork or whisk to soften. Then add vanilla extract and honey and mix well to combine.
  10. Add fresh blueberries to a bowl with maple syrup and place in microwave for 2 minutes and 30 seconds then use a fork to mash up the blueberries. If you do not want to use a microwave, cook over a stovetop until blueberries explode.
  11. Now layer the parfaits. Carrot cake, coconut milk whipped cream, blueberry sauce, then repeat.


This will make 3 jars full depending on the size of the jar, but can easily serve 4 or more.

Oh, Hi! I’m Juli.

I’m a food hoarder. And a really bad dancer. If you don’t know me well, you will probably not understand my humor. Therefore, I apologize ahead of time. Thanks for listening to my ramblings of my ever-changing life and trusting my kitchen mishaps. Your trust in me is appreciated.

  1. All good stuff – parfaits (which I never even considered could exist without long-forgotten cereals, cool!), excruciating workouts that bliss you out, and great pursuits for weekending. Enjoy!

  2. I have never had this thought before, but those photos make me want to lick my computer screen!
    I am making these ASAP!
    Gotta go get some blueberries!

  3. Assuming you don’t eat all of these at once….does the coconut cream keep its form when the parfaits are refrigerated?

    1. i would create them right before you serve them because the whipped cream gets a little soft and seeps into the carrot cake, but it’s still delicious either way!

  4. I just made your carrot cake last night!! Totally getting blueberry’s today to make this fantastic little treat for tomorrow morning!

  5. Blarg! Why must all these oven based treats fly out of my computer screen in AUGUST in AUSTIN! It’s going to be 106 today so maybe I could just put it outside for a while with a little tin foil over it.

    Unfortunately, the heat of summer prevents me from using the oven. It causes spontaneous self-combustion.

    I guess it’s good that the internet will still be around in a few months when it gets cold again.

  6. Since I’m a new local (well moved from Fort Collins) and trying to find some good farmer’s markets in Denver, can you make any suggestions?

    PS- Love love love your blog. (three loves might have been excessive. oh well.)

  7. Any other yummy suggestions on what else I could use instead of blueberries? (I despise them)…I will be making this……As soon as I’m out of Whole30 prison! LOL

    1. WORKOUT
      15 mins to find a max: High Hang Squat Clean into Hang Squat Clean into Squat Clean.
      In between Attempts perform 10 Toes to Bar
      THEN, 5 sets of:
      With a 2 minute clock:
      Sprint 300 m
      Max Effort Hang Squat Cleans (135#/95#)
      REST 1 minute
      Score is total Squat Cleans performed.

  8. Hey Juli!

    I so happened to have every ingredient in my apartment and made this right away. My boyfriend about flipped at how good this tasted. I shared this on my Charleston Paleo Facebook page so all the other members can try! Thanks for another great recipe:-)

  9. How do you stay thin? I LOVE your blog. Thank you for all of these great recipes! AND seriously, How do you not gain weight with all of these yummy treats? 🙂 Do you limit to once a week?

  10. Those look so good! Every time I try to bake with coconut flour my stomach feels really bad after. Is it something you just get used to? Other than almond, which we can’t use bc of an allergy, do you have any other suggestions?

    1. i’m guessing you have an allergy if that’s how you feel so i would stay away from coconut flour. this bread will still turn out just fine without the coconut flour

  11. This looks divine! I really appreciate your love and promotion of desserts in a sea of anti-dessert diet people, paleo or not.

    Apropos of nothing – I can highly recommend copper peptides for your skin problems. Made all the difference for me. I have no stake in this except to offer a suggestion because you’ve mentioned the issue a few times, so please don’t think I’m trying to sell anything. Anyway, check out if you’d like.

  12. All of the yeses… we did heavy back squats the other day and immediately afterward my quad muscle felt like it was ON FIRE and twitchy. It stayed like that for a good 24hrs, successfully freaking me out. GAH.

  13. Unreal!! So going to be trying this. FYI PaleOMG is my favourite thing on the world wide tinterweb! High 5!

  14. a) those parfaits look amazing b) I just moved to Denver, CO this week and am in serious workout pain mode. c) My muscles hurt so much from doing a stair workout WOD yesterday that I didn’t sleep a wink last night. I feel ya sister.

  15. Hey Juli…Not that we live in beautiful CO (instead in the SF Bay Area) but you mentioned food trucks and you would LOVE my husband’s. It is called Out of the Cave and they prepare mostly paleo meals. If you are ever in town…hit us up!

  16. This was so gooood! I never knew the blueberry in the microwave trick – I will be putting that on top of many treats!

  17. This looks so AMAZING! I must make this this weekend for my family. I have to say that I LOVE your blog! I’m sure you get that a lot :). I’ve only been Paleo for about one year and your blog was the main one that I followed once I started. You have awesome recipes and are so creative. You are an inspiration! Thanks!

  18. : just made these for dessert… such yummy goodness in the tummy! even got the hubster’s approval 🙂

  19. Juli! These are amazing, just finished my last jar. I added Hemp Seed Protein and it was just as good.


  20. I’ve tried a few of your dinner recipes (all winners!) but this is the first ‘dessert’ I’ve tried… OMG! Seriously. I can’t believe how cake-like and moist it is! Totally satisfied like carrot cake, minus the sock to the gut… I added a realllly ripe banana and a pinch of almond flour and it was perfect. You should have seen how excited my boys (ages 3 and 21 months) were to eat it, they were literally jumping up and down! Love your blog, thanks for the inspiration!!!

  21. I try to stay away from canned foods so the coconut milk here has me thrown. Could I use coconut butter instead? Artisana make a great coconut butter. It’s raw and organic but I think it contains some coconut oil.

  22. Totally loving your blog, and this recipe sounds amazing; going to make them tonight! Anything that’s going to make me feel like the naughtiest b*tch to hit the paleo scene can’t be all that bad!

  23. Hey…. I’m not totally Paleo but I have Celiac and love the recipes you post.
    I was wondering if greek yoghurt would work in place of the whipped coconut cream? I’m not a huge coconut fan, but would love to try this.

  24. Hey Juli! I would love to include this recipe in an article I am writing for Would you be ok with me including your website and recipe in the article?

  25. Made this today but used about 1/2 the honey and no maple syrup. Still quite good, but next time I’d either put more honey in the carrot cake or a banana as someone above suggested.

    This is my first time posting, but I’ve made SEVERAL recipes on this site and have enjoyed them all. Thanks so much! The banana vanilla pancakes with berry compote… I make this every time we have house guests and it is a hit with every single person.

  26. This recipe looks so yummy! I’ve never thought of putting carrot cake and blueberries together — it sounds like a nice idea! I’m going to tinker around with your recipe and see if I can make it dairy-free and egg-free as I don’t eat those ingredients.

    Very nice site!


  27. I modified the recipe a bit so that I could use carrot and apple pulp from my morning juice and made muffins out of them. Two cups of pulp, doubled everything else and added 1 tbsp coconut oil. They’re DELICIOUS!
