Carrot Cake Energy Bites

Carrot Cake Energy Bites

This recipe is for plant based carrot cake energy bites, which are vegetarian, vegan and gluten free. It is a quick and easy no bake snack that is healthy but still tastes like dessert. Can be thrown together in only 10 minutes! No added sugar, naturally sweetened with dates. There is also a recipe video at the end of post!

I’ve never actually baked a carrot cake, so I went to google and asked “what makes a good carrot cake?

Apparently, some mix-ins are controversial ingredients in carrot cakes (raisins, coconut, even nuts) depending on who you ask. But in general I learned it should definitely have a lot of spices, it shouldn’t really taste like carrots, and it should be moist.

A lot of the other rules don’t really apply for this recipe since these are no-bake. So we don’t need thinks like baking powder and eggs – and in fact, these are vegan and gluten-free.

Ingredients Needed:

Shredded Carrots

Pitted Dates

Rolled Oats

Chopped Walnuts

Coconut Oil

Ground Cinnamon

Vanilla Extract

Nutmeg

Sea Salt

Shredded Coconut (optional)
