Carrot Cake Bliss Balls

Carrot Cake Bliss Balls 

Carrots are one of my son’s favourite veggies and usually anything carrot cake flavoured is a hit! I over ordered carrots and so we’ve been eating a lot of carrot fritters, carrot pancakes and now these delicious carrot cake balls! They are so fudgy, delicious and sweetened only with dates!  The almond flour adds healthy fats, protein and Vitamin E and the carrots are loaded up with Vitamin A. These are perfect for snack time or in lunchboxes.
