Vegan No Bake Carrot Cake Energy Boosters


I’ve always loved carrot cake, that is why these vegan no-bake carrot cake energy boosters are the best thing I have made lately!

So this week, I have been busy in the kitchen, eagerly whipping up healthy versions of this sweet treat to take hiking… and I think I found the perfect recipe! Because I am a Type 1 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.  The small balls are easy to pack into a reusable container and throw into your backpack for a snack to keep you fueled.
