Total fun fact about myself: I’m a total sci-fi geek, but, more about that later. Also fun fact? Carrot cake is my favourite type of cake, ever. I mean, I won’t discriminate (hey cheesecake) but anything carrot cake flavoured is up there for me.

These Carrot Cake Energy Bites are sooo yummy. The spices added really help create that famously-known carrot cake flavour and up the ante for these bites. They are a great, all natural, super quick dessert idea that could easily be an on-the-go breakfast, post-workout snack, or any other purpose you’ll need these babies for.

P.S. – you will LOVE how these taste.

Back to my sci-fi love. My favourite types of sci-fi themes would be future world, space shows, alternate reality worlds, time travel themes, end of the world, post-apocalyptic, dystopian…you see where I’m going with this right? I also love superhero shows, both sci-fi and fantasy themes.

You should see our Netflix recommendations.

Earlier this month I was swapping shows/movies with a new blogger friend, Mary, and I was in full geek mode. After completely binging the show she recommended (P.S. Jericho is AMAZING) I went into a new show the Mr. found, Helix. Perfect snack while watching this show with my jaw on the floor? These Carrot Cake Energy Bites.

See how I kind of linked my rant? Ha. Grabbed right from the fridge, long lasting, and absolutely delicious.

In all seriousness, any craving sweet that you’re having, these Carrot Cake Energy Bites will solve it immediately. They’re also super customisable and great for meal prepping snacks and easy breakfasts. Feel free to use walnuts instead of pecans, dried cranberries instead of raisins, or even adding dried pineapples into these. Uh, that last part sounds DIVINE, yes to that.
