    sounds like a great recipe – I’m going to give it a try this weekend.
    my spur of the moment treats usually do involve chocolate – like cocoa with a little nut butter or some dark chocolate bark with lots of dried fruit & walnuts.

      :)!!!!! YAY! I was thinking rolling them in coconut flakes instead of almonds would be awesome (but I didn’t have any coconut…). SO HAPPY you loved them!

      Lemon zest is my new staple! It adds SO much to everything, I don’t know why it took me so long to get into it.

    These are DELICIOUS!!! We had fresh coconut in our fridge so I grated a bit up and added it to the balls and they were so yummy! Thanks for the great recipe!!!

  3. Hi Faith,
    Just wanted to say that I am a fellow blogger and a sometimes “lurker” on your site. 😉 I had tagged these carrot balls to try as I am always looking for tasty and healthy treats. I have been helping lead a group at my local Whole Foods who are going through a 28-day Engine 2 diet challenge (vegan, no oil) and I have been demoing different easy recipes for them to try. Last night was “E-2 approved desserts” and I wanted something not chocolate to add to the roster (banana “nice” cream, flourless/eggless peanut butter choc. chip cookies & E-2 brownies) and I whipped up a double batch of your recipe as it fits the criteria for this eating plan. I thought they were really tasty and the group of about 20 LOVED them–both the taste and how easy they were to make. There are 2 nut sensitive people in the group so I rolled some in sesame seeds (thought about coconut but I was out) which worked well too. I credited you and your blog on their copy of the recipe. Anyway, I’ll stop writing a book here but just wanted to let you know what a wonderful recipe it is and to thank you for posting it. Have a great day!

    I am new to the GF usages but thought this recipe looks good quick and easy. Is it possible to use steel oats since your using a food processor instead of regular oats? Would it give the same results?

      I have not experimented with putting steel cut oats in the food processor but my prediction is that they wouldn’t break down enough to become a good texture to eat raw. If you play with it let me know how it goes!
