Carrot Cake Bliss Balls

These nutty carrot cake bliss balls are a great go-to snack to stash in the fridge for holiday hunger!

Ingredients for Carrot Cake Bliss Balls

Here’s what you need for these vegan and gluten-free snack bites:

  • Nuts. The base of these fudgy bliss balls are pecans and walnuts. Use raw, unsalted nuts for this recipe.
  • Oats. I recommend using rolled oats (as opposed to quick or instant oats) for these carrot cake bites.
  • Cinnamon. For a touch of warming spiced flavor.
  • Dates. I love fudgy, sweet medjool dates to sweeten these bliss balls.
  • Carrot. For the true carrot cake flavor.
  • Almond butter. I like using unsweetened almond butter.
  • Vanilla. I like vanilla bean paste, but you could use vanilla extract (pure).
  • Orange zest. When you’re using orange zest, it’s best to use organic oranges, since you’re eating the skin.

Decorating the Bliss Balls

If you want to add some extra crunch, you can roll the fully shaped balls in fun toppings like:

  • Shredded coconut
  • Crushed pecans or walnuts
  • Chia seeds
  • Cinnamon
  • Cocoa powder

How to Store The Bites

Store these snacks in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a week. You can also freeze them for up to six months. They’re great frozen, but if you let them soften a bit, they’re easier to eat.
