Carrot Cake Balls

I love carrot cake. My wedding cake was actually carrot cake. It is the most scrumptious cake in the whole world. Isn’t it beautiful?


I just want to shove my face in it, it tastes so good. I guess I was able to scrape the knife against my teeth on a marital day. I probably only did that because I was in public and throwing your face into a tasty pile of dense cake layered with a cream cheese frosting is probably frowned upon.

These carrot cake balls are nothing like the real thing, I’ll tell you that now. But they are pretty darn good! It’ll have to do.

  • ½ cup shelled walnuts
  • 12 pitted dried dates
  • 1 teaspoon pure maple syrup
  • 1 ¼ teaspoons cinnamonVersion 3
  • 2 large carrots
  • ¼ cup dried cranberries
  • ¼ cup chopped pecans/almonds
  • ¼ cup shredded unsweetened coconut
  • Put walnuts in a food processor until finely ground. Put in a medium bowl.
  • Put the dates in the process and blend until ground. Add in the walnuts, maple syrup, cinnamon powder to the dates.
  • Blend until everything is mixed together. Transfer to a bowl.
  • Peel the carrots and chop end off. Using a food processor shredding attachment, shred the carrots. Or use a shredding tool.
  • Add shredded carrots to the date mixture until well blended.
  • Add cranberries and pecans/almonds to the date mixture.
  • Scoop out one tablespoon of mixture and use hands to roll into a ball. Do this for the rest of the mixture.
  • Roll each ball in shredded coconut to coat it.
  • Place in the fridge for an hour or so. Can be stored in fridge or freezer.
