Sneak some veggies into your kids snack or just enjoy yourself in the afternoon for a sweet pick me up.
1 cup nuts (i prefer a mix of almond and walnut)
1 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
½ teaspoon cinnamon
½ teaspoon sea salt
12 soft Medjool dates, pitted and soaked if they’re very dry
⅔ cup shredded carrots
In a food processor, combine the nuts, 1 cup shredded coconut, cinnamon and salt and pulse until it becomes a fine meal.
Add the dates and carrots and pulse until the mixture combines and sticks together. If the mixture is too dry, add a little water; if it’s too moist, add more coconut and/or let the mix chill in the fridge for 20 minutes to firm up.
Use a spoon to scoop the mixture, then use your hands to roll it into approximately 1-inch balls.
Roll in the remaining coconut to coat the outside, if desired. Store in the fridge in an air-tight container for up to 5 days.
