An easy and healthy snack for carrot cake lovers!
  • ½ cup nut butter (I used natural peanut butter)

  • 2 Tbsp sugar-free honey or additional sweetener *optional
  • 2 Tbsp of milk
For the Optional Frosting (not included in nutrition)
  • ¼ cup yogurt chips
  • 1 tsp coconut oil
  1. In a large bowl, mix together all the dry ingredients (oats, whey protein, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves) Then mix in the raisins and carrots.
  2. Add in the peanut butter, honey and mix until it starts to come together. Add in the milk to make the dough a good consistency to roll into balls.
  3. Roll into balls and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  4. Chill in the fridge and store in fridge or freezer in a sealed container.
  5. For the frosting, in a small bowl add in the yogurt chips and coconut oil, microwave in 30 second increments stirring after each 30 seconds until melted.
