LifeScape Recipes: Carrot Cake Bliss Balls

As we step into the holiday season, staying committed to a healthy eating plan can become more challenging. With many holiday favorites packed with unnecessary and unhealthy ingredients, indulging in even a few holiday meals can throw us completely off-track.

It is best to approach the holidays with a set of recipes that won't sabotage you in your pursuit of healthier living, while tasting delicious. These carrot cake bliss balls are the perfect compromise.

I absolutely love this delicious carrot cake treat from The Healthy Gut. The pecans and cinnamon provide that holiday-esque aroma and crunch, and the sweetness of the maple syrup (or honey) with the orange zest and carrots provides a perfectly balanced snack.
