No Bake Carrot Cake Bites

I concocted this recipe last Summer whilst teaching cooking in America and I can’t believe I haven’t made them again since!

I was having a bit of a panic just before I made them as the ingredients I had ordered to make sweet potato brownies hadn’t arrived and I was due to start classes within the hour. I rummaged through my cupboard of goods and came up with these absolutely amazing Carrot Cake Bites using up bits and bobs that I had left over and the outcome was delicious! They were a huge success with the girls and are packed with sneaky health so are perfect to make for your kids!


Makes roughly 12 balls


  • 1 1/2 cups oats
  • 1/4 cup pecans, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds
  • 1 tsp Coconut Oil
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup shredded carrots
  • 1/4 cup raisins
  • 1/2 tsp grated fresh ginger


  1. In a food processor, combine the oats, pecans and the chia seeds and mix well.
  2. Add the rest of the ingredients and blitz until combined.
  3. With a tablespoon or your sticky mitts (hands), roll into balls. You can roll the balls in desiccated coconut if you prefer a coconutty taste!
  4. Place the balls on a cookie sheet lined with wax paper and chill for a minimum of one hour.
  5. Serve chilled or at room temperature. Keep remaining bites in an airtight container for up to one week in the refrigerator.
