So I stumbled across this recipe on my favorite clean eating website iFoodReal. I didn’t have high hopes for it because this required all raw ingredients and nothing but a freezer and double-boiler (optional). I gave it whack anyways and was absolutely blown away by how amazing these balls were! I kid you not, they taste exactly like carrot cake and are so simple to make. I even made them with my Iron Maidens class and they were really into them as well! You can add the dark chocolate drizzle for a lil extra sweetness as well, and even that is less than 1/2 a square of dark chocolate so it won’t hurt ya.
Rah-rah Raw Carrot Cake Balls
1/2 cup raw almond butter
1 cup finely shredded/chopped carrots
1/4 cup rolled oats
1/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
1/4 cup raisins
1 Tbsp honey
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
pinch of salt
4 squares dark chocolate (70% cacao or higher-the higher the better) or 2-3 Tbsp dark chocolate chips
1 teaspoon unrefined coconut oil (it has a more coconutty flavor)
- In a medium bowl, combine all ingredients except chocolate and coconut oil until a dough consistency is formed.
- Roll mixture into golfball-sized portions and place on a parchment paper-lined sheet pan. Freeze for 30 minutes.
- If opting in for the chocolate drizzle, and you totally should, use a double-boiler or microwave to melt the chocolate and coconut oil together. Drizzle a small amount over each frozen ball and let chocolate harden.
- Before enjoying, it is best to let the balls soften up for about 5 minutes.
- Enjoy them balls!
