Carrot Cake Energy Bites

Carrot Cake Energy Bites

Do you have a sweet tooth? I sure do! And I LOVE carrot cake! BUT after the last carrot cake I make (actually it was the first and probably the last) I was shocked at the amount of butter and cream cheese that was in it. Don’t get me wrong, it tasted AMAZING, but I am not that interested in working hard on my health and fitness to undo it all with a few pieces (or a whole) cake! So I found and tweaked this recipes for these little gems. They taste like carrot cake and they are MUCH healthier. 

***Tip – I had trouble locating the Medjool Dates in the groceries stores when I live. I finally found them…by the fruit! Not down the aisle like I was expecting. So if you can’t find them, be sure to check in the produce section of your grocery store.

These delicious Carrot Cake Energy Bites are simple and delicious. If you are looking for a quick snack or treat to satisfy your sweet tooth you need to give these a try! I looked everywhere to find Medjool dates since that is what the recipe calls for, but I am sure that other types of dates would also work. I would love to hear how they turn out if you adapt it at all!
