Carrot Cake Bliss Balls

I am the queen of sneaking vegetables into places they don’t usually belong and this bliss ball recipe is a great example of how to eat more veg!

These balls are truly delicious and whilst they still contain sugar from the dates or apricots there is no added sugar. I like mine with a cup of tea in the afternoon!


  • 100g raw carrot, peeled and roughly chopped
  • 75g walnuts
  • 75g Brazil or cashew nuts
  • 80g dried apricots or dates (both will result in orange bliss balls)
  • 50g desiccated coconut
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon ginger
  • ¼ teaspoon nutmeg
  • ½ teaspoon maca powder (optional)

Extra desiccated coconut for dusting


  1. Add all of the ingredients to a food processor and blitz or pulse for around 7-10 seconds at high speed until well combined. Blitz for another 10 seconds if necessary.
  2. Roll into around 12 balls and roll in the dessicated coconut to stop them sticking together.
  3. Store in a glass jar in the fridge for up to a week.
