CARROT CAKE GOODIE BALLS

MAKES 16 BALLS | GLUTEN FREE | DAIRY FREE | VEGAN

Carrot Cake would have to be one of my all time favourite cakes. This tasty little recipe provides you with all the key flavours you would expect to find in a generous slab of cake, but in a healthy, lunch-box friendly snack. If you’re a meal-prep fan, make in advance and store in the fridge for the week ahead.
