Easter is just around the corner, and after taking a little break from posting, I finally have a new recipe for you: Carrot Cake Energy Balls! I had initially intended to bake a healthy carrot cake, but it didn’t turn out exactly as I’d expected. This happens during recipe development, especially when you’re back healthy treats free from refined sugars. But since I really wanted a healthy carrot cake, I decided to simplify things a bit and make Carrot Cake Energy Balls instead! These Energy Balls taste like the real thing and are perfect for Easter.

These Energy Balls make a great snack or dessert, take only a few minutes to prep, and are made from all-natural ingredients – unlike most of the Easter sweets you’ll come across!

Naturally sweet

My Carrot Cake Energy balls are sweetened with fruit only, which means that no additional sweeteners are needed. In addition to the basic ingredient, dates, these Energy balls also contain carrots, almonds, shredded coconut, and cinnamon.

One special ingredient: Carrots

The only disadvantage of these Energy Balls is that, due to the use of fresh carrots, they don’t keep as long as “classic” Energy Balls, which are made with only dried fruits and nuts. Sealed in an airtight container and stored in the fridge, classic Energy Balls stay fresh for several months; the Carrot Cake Energy Balls, however, will stay fresh for only around 3–5 days. However, they’re so good that I doubt they’ll last that long! ;-)

Admittedly, I was a little skeptical about using carrots in Energy Balls at first – but it’s not just about sneaking veggies into your desserts, I promise! :-)

Here’s the recipe:
