Carrot Cake Snack Bites


We eat dinner pretty early most nights which means snacks happen most evenings. We try and stick with something healthy and not straight dessert. I often throw a combination of things into my vitamix and make random creations. This carrot cake one was really good. They are like mini Larabars.

Carrot cake snack bites:

makes 1 dozen balls

4 dates

2 carrots

1 tbs milk

1 tbs flax seed

1/3 cup almonds

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp vanilla

pinch each of nutmeg and cloves

1/4 cup raisins

1-2 Tbs coconut butter, for “icing”

Mix flax and milk. Let sit while you place dates, carrots, almonds, cinnamon, vanilla, nutmeg, and cloves into a food processor. Add flax/milk and process until uniform. Add raisins and swirl again to chop slightly.

Roll into 1 inch balls

Dip each into the coconut butter. Depending on the temperature of your kitchen, you may have to heat it up a little bit so it’s a semi-liquid.
