Ingredients And Substitutions
These are the main ingredients and substitutions for No Bake Carrot Cake Bites. Scroll down to the recipe card for a full list of ingredients and instructions.
These bites are sweetened with maple syrup which is my favorite unrefined sweetener. However, you can also use honey, agave or date syrup.
Use all natural creamy almond butter for best results. You can however use cashew butter, pecan butter, or a seed butter like sunflower seed butter or oat butter to make these nut free.
For the carrots, you can use pre-shredded carrots to save on top, or shred them yourself using a cheese grater.
To wrap these bites up, add in some oat flour. Alternatively you can use almond flour, but you may need to add in more to achieve the right consistency.
How To Make
ONE: In a bowl, combine maple syrup and almond butter.
TWO: Next, fold in the shredded and chopped carrots.
THREE: Lastly, mix in the oat flour until a thick batter is formed. Then, use a cooke scoop or a tablespoon and add batter to a plate that is lined with parchment paper.
FOUR: Pop them in the freezer for about 15 minutes to firm up. Then, remove and roll them into balls. Place back in the freezer while you melt the white chocolate.
FIVE: When ready, dip and coat the balls in white chocolate before placing them back on the plate and back in the freezer to firm up once more, about 10 more minutes and ENJOY!!!
Tips And Tricks
Mix the wet ingredients first, add in the carrots and then add in the oat flour last.
Feel free to add in some raisins, walnuts, cinnamon or ground ginger to really bring out that carrot cake taste.
Use a cookie scoop for best results, I didn’t have one on hand this day so I used a tablespoon which still worked great.
If your bites are too soft, keep them in the freezer until they are firm to the touch. This makes dipping them in the white chocolate much easier.
