Carrot Cake Bites (5 Ingredients)

  • Prep Time: 10 mins
  • Total Time: 10 minutes
  • Yield: 18 balls 1x

These carrot cake bites are vegan, gluten-free, and made with wholesome ingredients. With 5 ingredients and 10 minutes, you have a decadent treat packed with all your favorite carrot cake flavors. 


  • 1 cup grated carrots *
  • 1 cup walnuts 
  • 1 cup pitted dates, packed 
  • 1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon 
  • 1/2 teaspoon Nutmeg 
  • Shredded coconut (optional, for rolling)
  • Pinch of salt


  1. Remove the pits from your dates. If your dates are dried out, soak them in water for about 5 minutes to rehydrate. If you have gooey dates, you can skip this step. 
  2. Pulse your walnuts in the food processor until a fine crumble forms. 
  3. Add the pitted dates, grated carrots, cinnamon, nutmeg, and a pinch of salt to the food processor. Pulse until evenly incorporated. 
  4. Form mixture into 1″ – 1.5″ balls. 
  5. If you want to spice up these carrot cake balls, roll them in some shredded coconut until evenly coated. 
  6. Put these in the freezer for 30 mins to firm up before consuming. Store in an air-tight container in the freezer. You could also store in the fridge, but these are best frozen! 


* If you don’t want to buy grated carrots or use a grater, cut your carrots into small coins and throw them in a food processor. Pulse several times until they reach the desired texture. This is how I do it!
