Healthy snack, anyone? These carrot cake energy bites are a great way to refuel after a long workout, as they’re packed with protein and just the right amount of sweetness. Plus, they’re easy to make, meaning you can whip up a batch in no time! I made these with a sunflower butter base, but if you have dietary restrictions or just prefer another nut butter, feel free to go your own way.

Carrot cake is a classic dessert. These carrot cake energy bites take the flavor of carrot cake, but in a healthy and delicious form. You can make them at home without any cooking experience and keep them your refrigerator or freezer for the whole family.

I love them because they’re incredibly versatile and make a great meal prep snack that hold well all week. They’re also kid-friendly and make great lunchbox snacks! They have all the best flavors of carrot cake – cinnamon, all spice and fresh grated carrots – rolled into tasty balls you when you need a little pick me up mid-day or when trying to fit some extra vegetables into your diet! 

Feel free to get creative and make this recipe your own! The fun part is substituting ingredients to fit your favorite flavors.
