We. Love. Energy. Balls.
They’re a super easy and quick snack, whether you’re looking for an on-the-go treat or a post-workout energy boost.
Dried fruits and nuts make these balls full of healthy goodness fibre, which is exactly what your body needs.
We’re always trying to mix things up and create new flavour combinations, and here’s our latest creation: carrot cake energy balls!
Make sure you store these in an air-tight container in the fridge and they’ll keep well for up to 3-5 days.
Don’t forget, if you love this, then you’ll totally love our debut 5-ingredient cookbook So Vegan in 5, which is available to buy right now.

- Finely grate the carrot and add it to the food processor along with the zest from the 1/4 orange, then pulse the mixture a few times until all the ingredients have combined. Avoid over pulsing the ingredients because it will turn into a mulch!

- Transfer the desiccated coconut to a small plate and roll the balls in the coconut until fully coated.
