These no-bake carrot cake balls are 100% vegan and raw, and can easily be whipped up in a food processor in only 5 minutes. They’re made with nutritious, wholesome ingredients yet they taste just like rich, decadent carrot cake!
Carrot cake is delicious, but also full of sugar, dairy, gluten and other unhealthy ingredients. I’ve had a long-time love affair with carrot cake however, I rarely eat it due to various food intolerances. I was craving some the other day and so I decided to make a raw carrot cake-inspired treat to satisy my craving!
These raw carrot cake balls are loosely adapted from my other raw recipes, such as Raw Chocolate Orange Almond Bites and Raw Coconut Chocolate Balls and contain many of the same ingredients, such as fresh Medjool dates, coconut, nuts and natural sweeteners.
Not only do these scrumptious morsels have the flavour of carrot cake, they actually have carrots in them! Since carrots tend to retain some water these balls have a chewier texture, which makes them an ideal treat for little ones. They are also super easy for little hands to hold onto and munch on!
