Carrot Cake Bites

Easter is around the corner and I am serving these cute little carrot cake bites from our February Challenge. They are the perfect snack for kids and adults, and also sweet enough for a little dessert.

If you celebrate all things Easter, including the bunny, these are a perfect sweet treat for your table. After all, the bunny's favorite food is indeed the carrot…right? Or perhaps you can make the bites into bunny tails sticking out of yogurt. Ok…I'll stop with the cuteness.

Gluten Free and Paleo Carrot Cake Bites

These bites are paleo and gluten free but even if you have guests with no dietary restrictions they'll be a hit! I love that these bites include carrots and dates for the main sweetener. If you want them less sweet simply decrease the amount of dates you use or omit the maple syrup. You can really make these your own!
