Carrot Cake Energy Balls

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.


Carrot Cake Energy Balls

Easy to make, with a hidden centre of yumminess!
Servings 12


  • 150 g dates
  • 150 g apricots
  • 150 g oats

  • 1 medium carrot, finely grated
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp ginger
  • 1 tsp mixed spice
  • 12 tsp peanut butter


  • 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.

    Hi Priya
    These look great, looking forward to trying them
    You made 3 types of energy bites on Eat Well for Less (Series 6 Episode 3) I can’t find the recipe anywhere. Would you share it please?
    Yours hopefully

  2. Can you add the recipe for the Orange and Cranberry Energy Balls, from this week’s Eat Well For Less episode, please.
