After 6 months of trying (& failing) to create a carrot cake, I decided to step down & make a simpler dish that would still have the spices & flavor of carrot cake.
The main ingredient in this recipe is the dates, which are high in energy & good to eat right before a workout. So technically I created a pre workout snack but let’s be real, this is the ideal small & tasty dessert right before bed or when your midnight cravings kick in.
(Vegan, Gluten Free & Paleo)
1 cup pitted dates
1 cup walnuts
1 cup grated carrots
1/4 cup raisins
1 tsp cinnamon
Pinch of freshly grated ginger
1) Blend all the ingredients in a blender until a sticky ball forms.
2) Remove dough from the blender and roll into 13 balls with your hands. Stick your thumb into the center of the ball (like you would when you make thumbprint cookies) & make a small well. Fill the well with cream cheese & keep in the fridge for 30 minutes before serving. Enjoy! ❤️
