No Bake Keto Carrot Cake Balls

These No Bake Keto Carrot Cake Balls are the best ever!! Seriously, I could have eaten the whole batch.

I mean, it helps that I love carrot cake.

These are literally carrot cake in ball form.

They are made up of unsweetened shredded coconut, almond flour, , finely chopped pecans, cream cheese, powdered monkfruit erythritol sweetener, vanilla extract, spices..and of COURSE shredded carrots!

This dessert is a nice leeway into my fall keto desserts. It's got the all of those fall flavours including cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and allspice.

On top of the glorious carrot cake batter filling, these no bake keto carrot cake balls are then coated in a delicious sugar free cream cheese glaze and rolled in more coconut!

You really can't go wrong with this recipe, it's so stinkin' good!

Ingredients In Keto No Bake Carrot Cake Balls

  • Almond Flour – I use the Kirkland Costco brand of almond flour (I buy it in bulk on Amazon or at Costco itself occasionally). As I’ve noted in many of my past recipes, the brand of almond flour can affect the final outcome of the recipe because absorbency can vary depending on how the flour has been processed.
  • Powdered Monkfruit Erythritol Sweetener  –   I use the SoNourished brand for both granular and powdered sweetener and love it! The powdered is the best option for no-bake goods and desserts where you want a very smooth final product. I also used the powdered in this recipe because it works great in baked goods but ALSO creates perfect glaze every time!
  • Xanthan gum – This is used to create a batter more similar to that of white flour. It helps give the carrot cake bites a chewier texture.
  • Unsweetened Shredded Coconut – Perfect for so many keto friendly recipes!

Tips For Making Low Carb No Bake Carrot Cake Balls

  • Feel free to add a few drops of molasses for a richer carrot cake flavour. This adds minimal carbs but lots of flavour!!
  • You can make these balls without the cream cheese glaze if you wish, they will still hold together just fine. 
  • Feel free to add walnuts instead of pecans if you want to mix things up a bit!

Tools I Used To Make This Keto No Bake Carrot Cake Balls Recipe

– Low Carb Substitution Guide – This is totally optional but if you like my recipes, I now have a $5 guide available with all of the substitutions I use to create every recipe on my site. You can use this to convert old traditional recipes and create new keto recipes! You can purchase it here and/or read more if you are interested. 🙂 I appreciate your support so much guys!

– Nutritional Food Scale – AKA my best friend. This little buddy has been with me for over 4 years and never fails. Perfect measurements and only needs the batteries replaced maybe once a year! (You can see it in a lot of my step-by-step photos!)

Parchment Paper – Helps to prevent sticking and makes it easy to lift desserts out of pans!
