Tiger Nut Carrot Cake Bites
This is truly one of my favourite go-to recipes, partly because these are simply delicious and partly because they are so easy to make. You can have a batch whipped up in literally minutes. I developed these a while ago but I have updated the recipe to include fresh ginger and a little vanilla powder. I honestly do think these taste more like a carrot cake than some carrot cakes do!  They are lovely and moist and not too sweet. I like to make a batch and keep in the fridge as a ready-made snack. I particularly love this recipe because it is so inclusive – I hate it when people feel left out because they are not eating certain foods. These are paleo, AIP, gluten-free, and vegan, and because they taste so much like carrot cake even my non-paleo, non-vegan, gluten-eating friends and family love these too! They are also great in kids lunch boxes and are so much healthier than the snack bars and snack balls you can buy. It also works fine if you omit the nuts too, simply add a little more Tiger Nut Powder.  
As with all of my recipes, these bites are super healthy and made with whole foods. These are full of good fats and raw veg,  and they taste like a really naughty treat. As an added bonus the Tiger Nut Powder means these are effortlessly full of prebiotic fibre which can help to boost gut health and feed your gut microbiome. They also contain coconut oil, cinnamon, and turmeric which can help calm and soothe inflammation. I love food that tastes delicious and is actually actively good for you. 
As an alternative  I sometimes press the mixture into a silicon cake case, top with coconut cream and pop into the fridge for a quick and extra special treat – I promise the coconut cream really gives a creamy carrot cake frosting and turns them into a truly divine and yet healthy treat.
