Raw Carrot Cake Balls

I love these raw Carrot Cake balls and hope that you will too, essentially if you like carrot cake (I certainly do!) then you’re going to love these deliciously moist, cinnamon spiced balls of goodness.  In fact you wont believe that they are raw, vegan, gluten and dairyfree! I’ve just tried them out on my friend Lisa and she loved them. In fact she had two, or was it three?

I used a teaspoon of fresh ginger this time and it really comes through but I may add more next time for a more intense ginger flavour.
