With kids asking for snacks multiple time every day, I love to have easy options on hand. I especially like ones that are easy to make, incredibly tasty, and have a little veggie mixed in! Can you relate? Of course you can.
This recipe check ALL the boxes and it is a great one to get kids involved with to help too!
Here is the recipe:
Carrot Cake Energy Balls
1 cup cooked quinoa
1 cup rolled oats
2/3 cup pumpkin seeds
2/3 cup natural peanut butter (or any nut / seed butter you have on hand)
1/4 cup pitted dates (or raisins)
1/4 cup honey
1 tsp cinnamon
1 carrot, peeled and chopped
- Put all ingredients into your food processor. Blend on low speed for 1 minute, and then on high until all ingredients are mixed together.
- Form into balls and serve! (It is best to store leftovers in the fridge.)
If you are looking for a new food processor, I love this one from Hamilton Beach because it has a large capacity and scrapes the sides as you go!
