Carrot Cake Bites

Prep Time15 mins
Total Time15 mins
Course: Snack
Cuisine: American
Servings: 15 servings
Calories: 82kcal


  • 3 medium carrots peeled and chopped
  • ¾ cup raw walnuts
  • ½ cup raw cashews
  • ½ cup packed pitted Medjool dates roughly chopped
  • teaspoons finely grated orange zest
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon ground ginger
  • ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • Pinch of sea salt


  • In a food processor fitted with the steel blade, process the carrots until finely ground. Add the remaining ingredients. Process until the dates and nuts are very finely chopped and incorporated into the carrots. The mixture should be moist enough to hold together when pinched between your fingers. (If not, add an extra date or two.)
  • Roll the mixture into small balls. Store in the refrigerator in an airtight container for up to 5 days.

      Hi Mari,

      So sorry about that! We recently redesigned our website and some of our recipes were lost in the conversion. We’ve found most of the missing ones but there are some that we’re still discovering. Thank you for pointing this out. I’ve added the recipe here. Again, sorry for the inconvenience.
