Ingredients for no bake carrot cake keto energy balls
Is carrot keto?
To make this keto energy balls recipe You will need to grate 1 carrot. Carrot has around 7 g NET Carbs in 100 g. It's not recommended to eat carrot often and in huge amounts on keto. However, when you have 1 carrot distributed in bigger keto dessert and you actually get a little piece in every energy ball, it is totally acceptable.
Cream cheese is my keto holly grail. It's so great and versatile ingredient. You can mix it in cakes, sauces, salty snacks. I am a huge cream cheese fan!
Blanched almond meal and shredded coconut
Blanched almond meal is ingredient that all of us keto people have in our pantries and fridges. One more key ingredient to stay persistent on keto. Shredded unsweetened coconut is one more ingredient that I use a lot in my keto kitchen, especially for low carb desserts.
Organic lemon zest
You need organic lemon zest for this keto recipe! If you don't have organic lemon on hand you can use few drops of edible lemon essential oil. I use these oils, and if you decide to buy for yourself you can use this link! If you have any question regarding these edible or other essential oils I will be happy to answer your questions, just send me an email on [email protected].
Low carb sweetener
I use for this recipe erythritol. You can use other sweetener like Swerve or Sukrin in the same amount. If using another sweetener please adapt the amount of sweetener, because they might be more or less sweet than erythritol.
Carrot cake spices
In these low carb carrot cake balls you need to add carrot cake spices combination. It's always vanilla, nutmeg and cinnamon. Without these spices it's not the same! And with these spices you have a real carrot cake experience!
