Carrot Cake Two-Bite Balls Recipe
🔪Prep Time: 20 minutes
1 cup old-fashioned oats
½ cup almond meal
½ cup pecans
⅓ cup plus 2 tablespoons unsweetened shredded coconut, divided
3 medium carrots, grated
15 dates, pitted
2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
2 tablespoons almond butter
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
½ teaspoon ground ginger
1Add the oats, almond meal, pecans, ⅓ cup coconut, carrots, dates, and cocoa powder to a food processor. Mix on high until well processed. You may have to scrape down the edges a couple of times to make sure the dates aren’t clumping.
2Add the almond butter, cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger. Mix again until well mixed. Scrape down again if needed.
3Transfer to a flat surface and make sure all is blended well. Use your hands if necessary. Pinch off pieces of dough and roll into sixteen balls. Roll the balls in additional shredded coconut, if desired.

Earth of Maria
I’ve never been good at introductions because when they’re needed, I seem to forget every single interesting thing about myself. But I guess we’ll start with the basics. My name is Maria, and I am a twenty year old student from England. I study history at the University of Oxford and live in Brighton, but I was born in Russia and moved to the UK around ten years ago. I’m a vegan foodie (as you can probably tell by this blog), a lover of long walks and somewhere awkwardly between extrovert and introvert. Veganism and healthy eating are a huge part of my life, given that both have helped me overcome an unhealthy relationship with food. Finding balance took a lot of time and patience. But, as with many things in life, hard work proved 110% worth it! Whenever I’m not in the kitchen or working in my room, you’ll often find me at the gym, or at the grocery store looking for inspo for my next recipe.
