I simply love these little carrot pecan bliss balls. I make a batch and keep them in an airtight container, then when I don’t feel like making pancakes or waffles for breakfast, I just grab 2-3 of these.

These are so deliciously satisfying with a hot cup of Partners coffee.

By the way, I am not being paid to profess my love for Partners coffee. My daughter introduced me to the brand and I love how smooth this coffee is. In my humble opinion, it’s some of the best coffee I have ever had!

These little carrot-cake-like balls are perfect whenever you need a pick-me-up or a quick, easy, portable dessert.

12 Ingredients to make carrot balls with pecans

What are the ingredients needed to make these carrot pecan bliss balls?

Now, you do need 12 ingredients to make them. To some, that might be a lot. But, it is well worth it.

And, after you gather all the ingredients, then it is just a matter of throwing them in a blender and blending them up. After that, all you have to do is form them into balls, chill them, and enjoy!

Spoonful of carrot pecan balls

Those 12 ingredients are:

  1. Pecans
    I used simple raw pecans for this recipe. But, you can use roasted pecans too.
  2. Carrots
    Nothing fancy here – just plain old, large carrots. I grated them before adding them to the blender as I didn’t want to have to blend this mixture for too long as I thought it might end up more like a paste.
  3. Dates
    Soak the dates for 1-2 hours in a bowl of warm water before adding them to the blender. This softens up the dates, and they blend easier, imparting their delicious sweetness rampantly through each of these carrot pecan bliss balls.
  4. Cinnamon 
    Ceylon cinnamon is my first option. Though, if you have regular cinnamon on hand, that works too.
  5. Nutmeg
    Just a pinch of nutmeg goes a long way.
  6. Cardamom 
    And, the same can be said of cardamom. Now, all powdered cardamom is not created equal. Look for powdered cardamom that has tawny and dark brown teensy tiny granules, instead of those that are a more uniform beige color.
  7. Cloves
    Cloves, along with the other spices, make these bliss balls so aromatic.
  8. Ginger
    I used a bit of grated fresh ginger in this recipe. You can use powdered ginger if you have it on hand. Fresh ginger makes these so gut-friendly, so that was my reasoning behind adding it in.
  9. Vanilla extract 
    Make sure to use pure vanilla extract and not imitation vanilla.
  10. Maple Syrup
    I added in a tad bit of dark amber maple syrup to complement the dates and amp up the sweetness of these balls.
  11. Coconut flour
    Coconut flour was the binder and gave these balls firmness.
  12. Raisins
    I added in raisins for a bit of texture.
