Carrot Spice Bites (AIP, 21DSD)

I am so obsessed with carrots right now, if you couldn't tell by the fact that this is my second carrot based recipe this month. I'm currently on day 16 of the The 21 Day Sugar Detox, and they're my go-to food when I'm craving something sweet, warm, and satiating.

My husband (a total sugar monster) even liked them, and my toddler would've eaten the whole batch if I would've let her. They are truly 100% guilt free!
