Vegan Carrot Cake Protein Balls


Protein balls

  • 75g pitted dates
  • 1 small carrot, finely grated
  • 75g walnuts (or can use pecans, hazelnuts or almonds)
  • 50g dried apricots, chopped
  • Pinch of cinnamon
  • Pinch of nutmeg
  • Orange zest
  • Desiccated coconut or raw cocoa nibs

Coconut frosting

How to make

  • Finely grate the carrot and squeeze any excess liquid.
  • Whizz everything except the coconut/cocoa nibs in a food processor until smooth.
  • Shape into small balls (this will make around 8 protein balls) and coat in coconut or cocoa nibs.
  • For the frosting, mix the coconut cream and vanilla together (you can use a little bit of maple syrup to sweeten if needed) and pipe it on top of the protein balls.
  • Decorate with little marzipan carrots and enjoy!
