I love carrot cake, and was very excited to use the flavours in it as my inspiration for this recipe! With the carrots, walnuts and BiaSol providing fibre, and dates a source of prebiotics, it is a delicious, and nutritious snack! [Ad-Pr Product, BiaSol]

MY TIP: These are perfect for freezing, so you can have them if you're feeling like you need something sweet one day!

Ingredients

* 2-3 Large carrots, grated
* 75g Walnuts
* 1tsp Vanilla extract
* ½tsp Ground cinnamon
* ½tsp Ground ginger
* 4tbsp Plain flour, sifted
* 2tbsp BiaSol
* 2tbsp Desiccated coconut
* 2tbsp Raisins
* 50g Dates, soaked

Optional
* 1tsp Coconut oil, melted
* 2tbsp Icing sugar, sifted

Method

1. Pre-heat the oven to 180degreesC.

2. Add the carrots, walnuts, vanilla extract, cinnamon, ginger, flour, BiaSol, desiccated coconut, raisins, and dates to a food processor. Roughly blitz until mixed and the batter is forming together but still with chunks of nuts and dried fruit.

3. Form into 8 even balls, and bake for ~25 minutes, until they hold their shape and have started to go golden.

4. Allow to cool, then drizzle with the coconut oil and sprinkle with icing sugar. Enjoy!
