These No Bake Carrot Cake Bites taste amazing and they contain 100% healthy ingredients! As well as being packed with vitamin A, healthy fats & fibre these no bake balls taste delicious and are so simple to make even the kids can join in with making them!

 

This recipe is a part of a collaboration with Si from The Diet Kitchen - we challenged each other to create a healthy and tasty recipe perfect for Autumn and after I used carrots in mine (to set the orange/Autumnal theme!), Si chose to use pumpkin in his Pumpkin Pie Overnight Protein Oats.

 

So once you’ve check out [my carrot cake bite recipe video] head over to Si’s Channel [The Diet Kitchen] to see his recipe!

 

Ingredients

  • 9-10 Medjool dates (pitted)
  • 1/2 cup (70g) walnuts/pistachios*
  • 1/2 cup (70g) ground flaxseeds/almonds*
  • 2 grated carrots*
  • 1 tsp cinnamon, 1/2 tsp ginger
  • dash of nutmeg, 1/2 tsp mixed spice (optional)
  • desiccated coconut (optional)

*You can get nuts (walnut halves & ground almonds) as well as carrots from Muscle Food - Use NIC5 for 5% off!

 

No Bake Carrot Cake Balls

 

Method

Step 1

Place the dates, walnuts, ground flaxseeds, carrots & spices into a food processor* and blitz until combined.

Step 2

Scoop out small handfuls of the mixture & roll it into 14-16 balls, placing them on a plate. Roll some of them in desiccated coconut (unsweetened) if you like it .. trust me this step makes them taste amazing!

Step 3

Pop them in the fridge or freezer for 15 minutes before enjoying! Keep them chilled between eating :)

*I love these food processors!

    OMG, yum! Just made these and they’re so tasty! Didn’t quite have enough ground almonds so added a bit of ground cocoa flaxseed, turned out great. Thanks Nic, love your recipes x
