No bake carrot/almond balls

  4. 4 tbsp cream cheese
  5. 1/3 cup granulated sugar or low carb sweetener
  6. Zest of 1 lemon
  7. 1 tsp vanilla extract
  8. 1 tsp cinnamon
  9. Pinch nutmeg

Steps

  1. 1
    Add all the ingredients together in a food processor and mix until combined.

  3. 3
    Tip: Firstly, I cut the carrots and grated them before in the food processor, took me 2 mins. Secondly, I soaked the almonds for about two hours and peeled off the skin, dried them and chopped them in the food processor separately coz I didn't have the blanched almond flour. You could always get it from the store. Thirdly, I used regular granulated sugar, but if you want to make it extra healthy you can always use low-carb sweetener (erythritol).

    You can also do a coating of coconut once you form the balls.
