Easter is right around the corner, and whether you celebrate it or not I think we can all enjoy the carrot cake overload that comes with it! Carrot Cake is to Easter as Pumpkin Spice is to Fall. Everything gets a carrot cake twist – candies, ice cream, donuts. When is Starbucks coming out with Carrot Cake Lattes???

Carrot Cake Energy Bites - No Bake, Vegan, Gluten Free

As I sit here writing this and sipping my boring, non-carrot cake coffee, I’ll just make up for it by snacking on these chewy, two-bite sized Carrot Cake Energy Bites! I like to think of them as the pocket-sized version of a whole carrot cake. They’re full of similar ingredients – carrots, spices, almonds. But are lacking the refined flour and sugar. Instead, whole grain oats are used which helps with the chewiness, but also adds fiber. And, a little bit of honey adds a touch of sweetness, but still keeps the added sugar down to less than 1 gram per ball!

These scrumptious little morsels were inspired by two of my most popular recipes – my Vegan Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting and my Crispy Peanut Butter Balls. I basically just mashed the two together and the end result was what will sure be your next go-to quick treat! Give them a try and be sure to tag me @HealthyHacksRD if you make them!
