Coconut Carrot Cake Protein Balls

Carrot Cake Protein Balls
By: Jamie Webber

When it comes to treating myself to something sweet, I’m typically a chocolate fan. I love making healthier versions of chocolate chip cookies, peanut butter cups and oreo cookies. But these new protein balls have opened my eyes to a whole new world of sweets beyond chocolate. They even have vegetables in them. These Carrot Cake Protein Balls taste just like the real deal except there’s no flour or added sugar. You can easily make them just by adding everything to a food processor or blender and once they are ready you’ll be satisfying everyone from your vegan friends to those who eat gluten-free. Even the burger lovers will enjoy these. If carrot cake is your thing, you’ll also love our Carrot Cake Juice Recipe.
