Katie: If you’re in the mood for something yummy and sweet, but don’t feel like spending a lot of time or heating up the kitchen with baking, these are the perfect treat. They’re simple, easy to make, and delicious! I followed this recipe for No-Bake Oatmeal Raisin Carrot Cake Bites from Loves Veggies and Yoga. You just combine oatmeal, carrots, dates, raisins, brown sugar, cinnamon, and vanilla extract in a food processor, and then mix that mixture with some reserved oatmeal and raisins. I followed the recipe as written, except for toasting the reserved oats in a pan to enhance their flavor.
These tasted really great and were so simple to make. It’s like eating cookie dough and isn’t even that unhealthy (as long as you don’t eat them all at once!). A good treat that I will definitely make again!
