I couldn’t let this holiday go by without creating a little sweet treat. Ever since I can remember, carrot cake has been a weakness of mines. Of course, I don’t want to munching down on slices of carrot cake every day, so I came up with Carrot Cake Energy Bites with a cream cheese frosting. Myself and my football mad teen are obsessed with them and I hope that you will be too.
My recipe makes approximately 14 balls. 13.4g of carbohydrates (without frosting) and 2.8g protein. Making them an ideal pre-workout snack if tight for time or not really hungry but need to ensure body is primed for workout. Or a great post-workout snack till you can get a proper meal. Plus you get all the added benefits of essential vitamins and minerals needed by the body to support energy metabolism for performance and recovery!
