Sometimes the best things come in small packages, like our stick packs, but these vanilla beauty carrot cake bites truly do taste like the very best thing. We love these bite sized cakes for a sweet treat because they are low in sugar but also benefit our hair, skin, and nails.*
You will need a food processor for this recipe as it makes it much easier to combine all the ingredients together. This recipe calls for carrots, dates, pecans, oats, vanilla extract, cinnamon, ginger, and our vanilla vegan collagen support blend. Pick your favorite plant based yogurt for the icing!
What is nice about this dessert is you don't have to even turn on the oven. It is a perfect dessert to bring to book club, have at a party, or during a pool day!
The cool thing about these beauty carrot cake bites is that they have carrots in them (duh!). Carrots come packed with benefits. They have antioxidants which can help protect cells from damage. They also have vitamin A which is very important for healthy eyes.*
We also love using dates for a natural sweetener. The cake bites are blended together in the food processor until a nice dough is formed. Then you'll mold them into bite sized balls. Place them on a plate or tray and let them chill for around 30 minutes. Once they have chilled you'll ice them!
We like to use a low added sugar plant based yogurt for our icing, but feel free to use whatever type of icing you prefer. For an even added collagen boost, add our original or vanilla vegan collagen support blend to your icing. It'll help thicken the yogurt and add a hint of vanilla if you are using our vanilla blend.
Speaking of our collagen-supporting blends, all of our beauty-boosting collagen support blends were formulated and dosed by herbalists.* What sets our blends apart is the fact that they address collagen loss from all angles.* Our plant botanicals both fight collagen degradation and support your body’s own natural collagen production for healthy and vibrant skin, hair, and nails.* Some of our collagen supporting ingredients include: tremella mushroom, bamboo leaf extract, amla berry, and gotu kola. Have any questions about what goes into our blends? Check out our ultimate ingredient list for the full scoop on each of our collagen-supporting ingredients.
