Is it an energy ball? Is it a cake ball? How about both? Instead of frosting, the cream cheese is rolled right in, helping to hold all the ingredients together.

Ingredients

Graham cracker crumbs

½ cup(s), (from about 3½ whole graham crackers)

Low fat cream cheese

3 tbsp(s)

Coconut oil

2 tbsp(s)

Uncooked carrot(s)

5 tbsp(s), finely shredded, divided

Unsweetened coconut flakes

3 tbsp(s), divided

Walnut(s)

3 tbsp(s), chopped, divided

Raisins

3 tbsp(s), chopped, divided

Ground flaxseed meal

2 tbsp(s)

Ground cinnamon

½ tsp(s)

Instructions

  1. In a medium bowl, combine the graham cracker crumbs, cream cheese, and coconut oil and mash with a fork.
  2. Add 4 tbsp carrot; 2 tbsp each coconut, nuts, and raisins; the flaxseed meal; and cinnamon and combine with a fork or your hands until the mixture holds together. Roll rounded tablespoons of the mixture to make 8 balls.
  3. In a small cup, combine the remaining 1 tbsp carrot, coconut, nuts, and raisins. One by one, roll the balls in the mixture to coat. Place the balls on a plate and cover with plastic wrap. Or store in an airtight container, separating layers of the balls with sheets of wax paper, and refrigerate.
