Carrot Cake Truffles

Why are delicious things so high in calories? Seriously, you would think that with crazy technological advances such as lightning-fast DNA sequencing and cars that can park themselves common today, someone would have taken the time to come up with a carrot cake that’s zero calories or Ben & Jerry’s pint that contains less than…

Moist Gluten Free Carrot Cake
