Carrot Cake Truffles
For a cake that’s named after a vegetable, carrot cake is usually packed with copious amounts of sugar and oil. These scrumptious bliss balls are not. They’re wholesome, nutritious and naturally free from gluten, dairy, egg and refined sugar! Make a batch, it’ll take you less than five minutes and your body will LOVE you for it (so will your taste buds).
1 cup grated carrots
1 cup almond meal
6 large medjool dates
1/4 cup unsweetened desiccated coconut + a little more for coating
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp ground ginger
1 heaped tbsp raw honey or pure maple syrup
1 heaped tbsp nut butter (I used peanut)
1 tbsp water
Place all ingredients in a food processor and blend for a minute or so until the ingredients begin to stick together (similar to a dough-like mixture).
Form small balls with your hands.
To finish, coat the balls by rolling them in the remaining coconut.
