Carrot Cake Energy Bites {grain-free, sugar-free}

As my love for raw energy bites continues, I am sharing a fun variation today. 

Carrot cake bites.


Because I love carrot cake - so why not turn the dessert into a power bite? 

These are a great snack or I’ll eat them as dessert when I’m craving something sweet.  Bonus - there is no sugar in these…but you won’t even notice!

I like rolling the balls in unsweetened shredded coconut. 


Pack a few of these in your bag and you are good to go!

Carrot Cake Bites {grain-free}

8 large Medjool dates, pitted and chopped

1 cup chopped pecans 

1 medium carrot, chopped

¼ cup unsweetened shredded coconut (plus more for rolling)

2 tablespoons chia seeds or flaxseeds

¾ tsp cinnamon 

½ tsp. vanilla 

1 tsp.  coconut oil, melted 

Pinch of sea salt


- In a large food processor, process the chopped carrot until finely chopped. 

- Soften the dates: soak the dates in very hot water for a few minutes to soften them. Then, chop them up and add to the processor with the carrots. Pulse a few times. Then, add the rest of the ingredients and process until the mixture comes together.  It should hold together when you pinch it. 

- Roll tablespoon-sized balls with your hands. Then, roll the balls in unsweetened shredded coconut. Place in refrigerator until balls harden (30 minutes). 

- Store the bites in the refrigerator for the week


Power on. 

And stay tuned for more variations!…
