Carrot cake is delicious, but it’s usually off limits until dessert. A slice of decadent carrot cake with rich cream cheese icing can reach around 500 calories, which can easily ruin your diet for the day. These carrot cake energy bites encapsulate the flavor of carrot cake, minus the calories. Best part about them is that they don’t even require baking.
