Carrot Cake Bliss Bites

Bliss bites and no-bake energy balls could easily be deemed the newest Insta foodie trend. As a busy gal myself, I can’t deny that such hassle-free recipes are perfect for a grab-n-go snack; but, with SIBO and leaky gut (which I will discuss more in-depth in a later blogpost!), such recipes usually do not agree with my combo of low FODMAP and SCD diet needs. Typically sweetened with honey or agave and filled with chia or flaxseed, I added bliss bites to what can, at times, feels like a never-ending list of foods my incredibly sensitive digestive tract simply cannot tolerate.

But, that is not what my blog is about! I made The Cutie Foodie to prove we can have all the gut health problems and dietary restrictions in the world and we can still find a way to enjoy all the foods we love without feeling like we are missing out! So after snapping out of it, I messed around until I found the perfect ratios and that’s what these Carrot Cake Bliss Bites are all about!
