These little carrot cake Larabar style balls have a fruit and nut base, with the addition of fresh carrot, coconut and cinnamon and nutmeg. All the flavours of my favourite dessert, carrot cake, in a sweet little raw and gluten free ball. The best part? They are super easy to make. My older kids can even make them. Healthy, money saving and a kid friendly recipe, what’s not to love?!
If your dates are really dry, soak them in some hot water for a few minutes to plump them up a bit (drain first). Experiment with combinations of nuts; adding some walnuts give them more of a carrot cake flavour, but I prefer the texture of cashews. Try some of each and see what you prefer, and make this recipe your own.
