No-Bake Carrot Cake Bites

Written by COA Nutrition Team On September 10, 2021

When you’re in need of a quick, healthy snack (or sweet treat), these carrot cake bites are the perfect recipe! They require no cooking, are quick to make, slightly sweet and packed with healthy ingredients!


  • 3 medium carrot
  • 6 medium dates, Medjool
  • 1/2 cup pecans, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon almond butter
  • 1 cup oats, dry
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon ginger, ground
  • 1/8 teaspoon sea salt


  1. Add the carrots to the bowl of a food processor and process until finely ground. Transfer to a plate or bowl and return the bowl to the food processor base.
  2. Add in dates and pecans and process until combined. Return the carrots to the food processor and add in the remaining ingredients.
  3. Process until a dough forms and you can roll them easily into balls. If the mixture is too wet, add in a tablespoon or two of flaxseed meal (or more oats). Roll the mixture into balls and store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to one week.

Planning Ahead Tip of the Month

Yes, you should get an air fryer!

There are a lot of questions popping out when it comes to this latest kitchen craze. Is it worth buying an air fryer? Here are some reasons why we think so: • Easy to clean • Easy to use • Safe to use • Healthier meals • Doesn’t take up much space • Faster Than Oven Cooking An air fryer is an incredibly easy way to cook just about anything. You place the food in a fryer-style basket and hot air rapidly circulates all around the food, making the food crisp – much like deep-frying, but without the oil. You can cook anything you’d make in the oven. So, yes, DO IT!
