I’ve always loved me some carrot cake, that why these vegan no-bake carrot cake energy boosters are the best!
So this week, I have been busy in the kitchen, eagerly whipping up healthy versions of this sweet treat… and I think I found the perfect recipe! Because I am a diabetic, my diet is fairly restricted and free of refined sugars, dairy and gluten. But that doesn’t necessarily mean I have to sacrifice flavor!
These no-bake carrot cake energy boosters, though small in size, are PACKED full of flavor. They’re super tasty and really easy to make. I made them in less in 10 minutes.
These perfect on-the-go bites will be coming with me on my next hike or adventure!
Give them a try and let me know what you think!
