Refined sugar free and high in plant based protein may not be your first thought when carrot cake comes to mind. After biting into one of these babies though, it’s all you’ll think about. Made with a base of chickpeas, protein powder, and almond flour, these balls are filled with protein, fiber, and healthy fats. You’d never know though from the mirage of spices and sweet carrots that you taste in every bite.

These are also completely customizable depending on your taste preferences and what you have on hand. I love walnuts in my carrot cake, but you can also mix in raisins, dried ginger, coconut, or whatever else you usually like in your cake. Want to go above and beyond with this recipe? Coat the balls in a healthy “cream cheese” frosting to send them over the edge. Sprinkle over some extra carrot shreds and nuts and you’ll have everyone going nuts over this adorable snack.

These cake balls also hold up well in the fridge or freezer, making them perfect for meal prepping. I recommend frosting and decorating them right before serving.


Enjoy one as a snack or a couple for breakfast whenever your carrot cake cravings call!
