Everybody loves a good snack ball or cookie right?! These are super simple - no baking needed. One thing you will need is a food processor. Otherwise you will be doing a lot of chopping and they won't be quite as quick to whip up!
Carrot cake balls
- 2 handfuls of almonds
- 1 handful of walnuts
- 50g of almond flour
- 15 Medjool pitted dates
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 carrots grated
- 2 tablespoons almond butter
- 1 heaped teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon of ginger
- 1/2 teaspoon of nutmeg
- 1/4 teaspoon all spice
- Desiccated coconut for rolling in
- Place all ingredients in a food processor.
- Blitz mixture until it starts to form a coarse texture. Add more honey or more almond butter as needed to form a sticky dough. Dough should stick together when pinched between two fingers.
- Wet hands slightly and roll into balls, I made 12 with this batch.
- Sprinkle coconut into a container or bowl. Put the balls in and give a shake around to cover.
- Store in the fridge or freezer until ready to enjoy!
