Raw Carrot Caramel Balls

Updated: Jul 12, 2021

WOOWW. These are to die for. Gooey and caramely and sweet and spicy. Like a raw carrot cake, but better. In my opinion! To be honest, I even eat these for breakfast. Why not, right?!





You don't want to miss these!


Healthy, vegan, gluten free and guilt free perfect little bite sized heaven.



They're no bake & super simple. All you need is a food processor or high speed blender.


I like to store them in the freezer for the ultimate caramel texture. This way, they will totally last indefinitely!





How to make raw carrot balls:

All you really have to do is pulse everything together in a food processor! It's that easy. I like to soak the dates before hand to make sure they're extra gooey and easy to blend. If you're blessed with the date Gods of medjools in your area - then you probably don't need to! I think it makes it a little easy on the food processor too, though. Simply cover the dates with boiling water and let sit for 15-20 minutes while prepping the rest of your ingredients!
