All the scrumminess of carrot cake in a bite-size, no-bake energy ball?? Yeah buddy, that’s right! Ok, ok, I know they don’t have cream cheese frosting, but trust me, these are the goods.
Don’t overwork the mixture once you add the carrot and walnuts, it adds to the carrot-cakiness by having these ingredients give texture to the mix.
1 cup almond flour
1 cup dessicated coconut
1 teaspoon each of nutmeg, allspice and ground ginger
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 1/2 cups peeled and grated carrot (2 small carrots)
1 tablespoon maple syrup
2 tablespoons coconut oil
5 tablespoons date paste
1/2 cup walnuts, roughly chopped
Extra dessicated coconut or shredded coconut to coat the bites.
Peel and shred your carrots in a food processor. Remove and set aside to add later.
Put your almond meal, dessicated coconut and spices in food processor and whizz together.
Add your maple syrup, date paste and coconut oil and combine.
Put your carrot gratings back in and combine for a few seconds.
Add the walnuts and whizz through.
Roll into small balls, then roll in coconut.
Keep in an airtight container in the fridge.
Makes 16 bites.
