Recipe Notes

My bites firmed up nicely in the refrigerator, but just after rolling they were very moist. I think this happened because the carrots released a lot of water when I finely shredded them. When I make them again, after shredding the carrots I will blot them with a paper towel to absorb any excess moisture, or I may finely chop them by hand instead, before adding them to the food processor.

I could have also added in a few more tablespoons of oats prior to rolling to help with the absorption. But they still taste great!

To ensure your bites are gluten-free, be sure to use rolled oats that are labeled gluten-free.

Serving Suggestions

The no-bake energy bites taste a lot like carrot cake and make a great grab-and-go snack or lunchbox treat. And they’re a great option for anyone following a vegetarian or vegan diet.

Try making a little breakfast parfait by adding a couple of bites to a small bowl, topping with some non-fat Greek yogurt and light sprinkling of your favorite natural granola and maybe even a few raisins!
