Making things at home that are healthy and easy to consume on the bike can be quite tricky, but these bite-sized, bike-friendly balls do just the job.

They will bring you back to life on a long ride and give you the same sweet tasting kick you would get from a slice of carrot cake (but without the guilt).

Place the bread into a food processor and pulse until you have an even, crumbly consistency.

Combine the remaining ingredients in the food processor and mix until you have a sticky mixture. Next, roll the mixture in your hands to create the bite-sized carrot cake balls.

Then, press them into an airtight storage container or wrap up the bites into the foil to keep them fresh!
