Description

Easy no bake Carrot Cake Bites! A healthy snack with no oil, flour, and or refined sugar. Made with nourishing ingredients like oats, coconut and almond butter with the fun flavor carrot cake! Portable, vegan, gluten free, and kid friendly.  Inspired by my cookie dough protein bars.


Ingredients

Units Scale
  • 1/4 cup raisins (optional)
  • 1 3/4 cups oat flour (or make your own by grinding oats in the food processor)
  • 1/2 cup vanilla plant-based protein powder*
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/8 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp fine sea salt
  • 1/2 cup creamy cashew butter or almond butter (the drippy kind)
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1 cup shredded carrot

Instructions

  1. Place raisins in a bowl. Cover with warm water and let them soak to plump up. Shred carrots (I use the shredding attachment on my food processor.)
  2. Place oat flour, protein powder, coconut, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and salt in a large bowl. Whisk to combine.
  3. Drain raisins thoroughly. Add almond butter, almond milk, maple syrup, carrot and drained raisins. Using clean hands, stir mixture until fully combined. Add a splash more almond milk necessary.
  4. Roll into 20 balls.  Store in an air-tight container in the refrigerator or freezer for optimal texture. 

Notes

*if you use collagen peptides, omit the almond milk and only add if needed. Protein powders vary but peptides absorb less than vegan protein powders.
