Carrot cake bliss balls (vegan, vegetables, wheat free)

Healthy finger food is essential in our house of little hands. I made this recipe as a special treat for my cherubs. These raw bliss balls taste like carrot cake, with fresh carrot and warming spices, but without the sugar, butter and nuts.

Ingredients:

1 1/2 cups rolled oats
1 1/2 cups dates
2 carrots
2 heaped tsp mixed spice
2 heaped tsp ground cinnamon
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 tbsp agave nectar (can omit)
water for preferred consistency

Method:

Blend in food processor for several minutes, gradually adding the water after ingredients are finely combined until mixture forms a thick, coarse paste. Roll with wet hands into balls. Refrigerate until set (at least an hour).

Note: I love spices but you can reduce if you would like less intensity.

Optional- these freeze really well. You can also roll them in coconut or sesame seeds. I freeze them individually for my daughters’ play school lunch in the Decor branded dip containers. It works brilliantly.

Enjoy!
