Carrot Cake Bites

I am not a fanatic of making energy balls because I made a mess in the kitchen and my hands go sticky.  However, I made this Carrot Balls from Raw Manda http://rawmanda.com/ and I loved them! I get so much fun, natural sweetness and Vitamin A! I do them over and over every time they run out. My sister and parents also love them!

Of course I adapted the recipe a little bit to my likes. I sometimes change the cover of the bites and use walnut or organic coconut shreds and also play with the spices. Once you made a batch every two weeks, you will become friendly with the procedure. The trick for not getting sticky hands is to have them wet or damp when shaping the balls.

The Carrot Cake Bites should be store in the freezer first until they get a nice consistency and the they can be transfer to the refrigerator.
