How to make Carrot Cake energy bites
We are keeping things as easy as possible. Also using minimum and clean ingredients.
You can simply mix everything with a spatula. Or if little chunks of carrots in these energy bites isn’t your thing, you can quickly pulse everything in a food processor. Delicious, both ways!
I chose to quickly grate my carrots and mix all the 3 flours, honey, carrot and some spices together.
Then we will roll these cute little carrot cake energy bites.
Trick to easily stick coconut to carrot cake bites
It took me forever to stick shredded coconut to these energy bites. Then I tried rolling the balls in little honey first and coated them with coconut then!
Works like a charm!
Also if you find coconut flakes are a little to long, you can roughly cut them using a knife. They stick so much better this way!
So easy to put together, don’t even require to turn that oven on and these carrot cake energy bites taste like a carrot cake. Pinky swear!
Did I tell you these are loaded with a ton of protein, fiber and good for you fats?? You are welcome!
Snack on them, enjoy them as a dessert after dinner. ZERO GUILT every single time!
