    So, what if you are allergic to whey? What can you use instead in the carrot cake protein balls? Hubby’s allergic to almonds, so I’d already be using walnuts instead.

      Hi Carolyn. Thank you so much for checking out this recipe.

      You could easily substitute the Platinum1 Whey Protein Blend with our Harvest Plant Based Protein Blend which comes in a Vanilla Caramel flavor which would compliment this recipe nicely.

      I also think the substitution of walnuts for almonds would be lovely as well.

      I do hope you will stop back by, let me know how they turn out. Have a wonderful day!
