Carrot cake balls – Paleo style

These were the second dessert option we made for the Superbowl party. Everybody loved these including the kids. My kids would have powered through the whole batch before we left if I hadn’t stopped them. And let’s be honest here. My husband was taste testing his fair share as well. Needless to say, I made a second batch. As with the Chocolate/Coffee version, these are very flexible. Use the nuts and seed you have on hand. Add less dates and oil/milk for a crumblier treat. Add more dates and oil/milk for a sweeter gooier snack.
