Paleo Carrot Cake Balls

20130914-200212.jpg

I’m really into no bake, dried fruit and nut bar or truffle recipes like raw vegan paleo truffles and and paleo muesli bars! Paleo baking usually lets me down but it’s impossible to go wrong with a fruit and nut combination. I’ve been experimenting a lot lately and I really like this one as it incorporates raw carrot, another way to fool the kids into eating their veg! Ha ha ha she says with an evil laugh 🙂

My kids loved this one but the better half found them a bit strong, on account of the allspice, so use your discretion when adding it in. I like it as it tasted very “carroty cakey” – yum.

INGREDIENTS

. 1/2 cup grated carrot
. 1/2 cup walnuts
. 1/2 cup sultanas or raisins
. 1/2 tspn cinnamon
. Pinch nutmeg
. Pinch ground ginger
. Pinch allspice, optional
. 1/2 tspn vanilla
. Dried coconut to roll balls in

METHOD

1. Place all ingredients into food processor and blitz til very well combined.
2. Take out small portions and roll into coconut. Place in fridge to set and voila.

The inspiration for this recipe came from Oatmeal With A Forkblogger and I’m very pleased I found her xx
