Carrot Rounds

Raw donut holes? I saw the recipe, and thought why not? One thing to understand about raw cupcakes, donuts, and other snacks that are usually baked is that the texture is not like baked.

But, these were tasty and had lots of fiber, so they didn’t blow out my blood sugar level. They taste great with Michigan apple cider. This recipe has inspired me. I’m going to play around with a carrot cake recipe next.

2 cups shredded carrot
2 large ripe bananas
12 medjool dates pitted
1/2 tsp ginger
1 tsp cinnamon
½ Tbl lacuma powder (optional)
MI maple sugar (optional)

Put all ingredients, except the maple sugar, in food processor and mix until smooth. Roll into balls and place on teflex sheet. Dehydrate 12-20 hours at 115F.
Dust with ground maple sugar if desired.

These are best right out of the dehydrator and will gain moisture during storage. Store them in the refrigerator and only for a few days.

This recipe originated here, but I tweaked a couple of things.

We ate them after a Pickerel Lake hike as we balanced them on the car hood. Happy Autumn!
