Raw Carrot Cake Bites

Raw Carrot Cakes Bites | Plaid & Paleo
I learned so much at Paleo fx this past weekend. I am really want to start eating more variety. I ate chicken and turkey for so many years. It has been a transition to simply add read meat and a little pork back in my diet. After attending many of the sessions on the autoimmune protocol, I realized my diet is not as rounded as I’d like to think. I’m want to start eating liver even though the thought makes me gag a little. After I get back from Europe, I plan to do a full evaluation of my diet and see where there are any holes.

So I planned to leave Austin yesterday and get home in plenty of time to write my post. Unfortunately traffic had other plans for me. The entire highway I was traveling on was closed due to an accident. My GPS decided this would be a good time to stop working. Two hours later and one tour of Fort Worth, I finally made it through Dallas. Needless to say, I will be flying the next time I go to Austin!

I really wanted to make carrot cake cupcakes then remembered I’m not the best baker. Instead I put all the yummy flavors of carrot cake into a no bake ball. These are so easy to make. I settle my craving for carrot cake without turning on the oven. Makes about 20.
