Carrot Cake Power Balls

Carrot Cake Balls

These little raw treats were great for the kids to make at #JuniorTriCamp. We made these for coach and team challenge judge Jimmy Kershaw as carrot cake is his favourite bike treat.

These no-bake tasty little nuggets that can go in a bike bag for a long bike ride, or just in the fridge for a quick pick-me-up when needed.

Guilt-free ingredients as there is no added sugar in these surprisingly sweet treats, just dried fruit and carrots provide the hit you need.

Ingredients:

1 cup of oats

7-8 dates

1/2 cup of raisins

3/4 cup grated carrot

tsp cinnamon

tsp ginger

1/4 cup of water

Chuck all the ingredients except the water in a food processor and whizz. Drizzle in the water until the mixture starts to come together. Roll into bite-sized balls and refrigerate for a couple of hours, or freeze for next time you go out on  a bike ride. The frozen balls will defrost as you ride ready for when you need them.

Yummy.

TIp: I rolled mine in ground almonds to make them look prettier, the kids added various decoration-oats, nuts, raisins to make them as pretty as they were delicious 🙂
