Carrot cake energy balls

These carrot cake energy balls, make a great snack or breakfast on the go. They are slightly sweetened from the dates (no refined sugar here) with a nice kick from the ginger! I'm also adding sunflower protein powder to boost the protein and make them the perfect pre-workout energy snack!
