Carrot Cake Protein Balls

Getting a little obsessed with all thing Carrot Cake over here, see my last recipe for Carrot Cake Porridge  so my next carrot cake themed bake was protein balls. They come together in about 5 mins and are ideal for keeping in the fridge throughout the week as a snack or bringing into work to have with a cup of tea when 4pm rolls around. Each ball contains the perfect amount of spice cinnamon and ginger to give it that distinctive carrot cake flavour as well as fresh grated carrot to squeeze in an extra vegetable into you day.

Give them a try and let me know if you become as carrot cake obsessed as I am!
