Walnut & Raisin Carrot Cake Energy Balls

This recipe uses leftover juicing pulp to make healthy energy balls. We’re using a mixture of carrots, apples and ginger combined with ground mixed spice and walnuts for a flavour similar to carrot cake. They’re naturally sweetened with the fruit pulp, raisins and dates. High in fibre, these will keep your energy balanced and are a great snack when you’re on the go!

Tips

To minimise food waste store nuts/seeds out of direct light and heat and always in an airtight container.
Making energy balls is a great way to use up leftover juice pulp, you can alter the recipe to suit whichever pulp and spices you have. For a firmer energy ball, you can drizzle in melted coconut oil or chocolate.
