I’m on a personal mission to reduce my biscuit intake. Now there is totally nothing wrong with a biscuit or 2, but these carrot cake energy balls add in variety and nutrition. I find they really hit the spot by giving me something to munch quickly when I’m running from job to job and they are more filling than my usual biccie.
These last for 3 days in the fridge and they also freeze well so why not make a batch and get them out the freezer in the morning, ready for when you need them.

- 1 medium carrot, finely grated
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp ginger

Place the dates, apricots, oats into a food processor. Process adding a splash of water if needed.
Add the nuts plus oats and food process these too, alternatively these can be done seperately.

Now take another section of the dough to cover and roll into a ball.
