Carrot Cake Protein Balls

These are surprisingly delicious, considering they are dairy free, gluten free and paleo! Super sweet from the natural sugars in the carrots and dates, this is a wonderfully simple, no bake, guilt free snack or dessert! Watch out though… very easy to eat the entire batch in one sitting 🙂

These ingredients will make 15 balls:
3/4 cup almonds (120g)
6 pitted dates
1/3 cup unsweetened flaked coconut (30g)
1/2 cup grated carrots (60g)
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground cloves
pinch sea salt
2 tbls melted coconut oil
cocoa powder (optional)

1. Grind the almonds into a powder. Set aside.

2. Blend together the dates and coconut. Add back in the almonds, and the carrots, cinnamon, ground cloves and sea salt. Mix as much as you can. Shake it up a few times if you’re blender is having some trouble.

3. Add the coconut oil and blend once more. (If your blender is having a hard time blending this mixture, just take out and mix with a spoon.)

4. Roll into balls, place on a plate and refrigerate! You can roll them in cocoa powder or toasted coconut if you’d like! 🙂

That’s it! Enjoy!
