Servings: 12
Prep Time: 10 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 cup grated rainbow carrots (we used purple, yellow, orange)
  • 1/2 cup pitted dates
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1/3 chopped pecans
  • 1/3 coconut flakes
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 vanilla extract

Equipment

  • Food Processor / Blender
  • Mixing Bowl

Method

  • Grate the carrots, and set aside.
  • In a food processor, add in your dates and pecans until a sticky mixture forms. You will notice it begins to "ball" into a mass.
  • Take the pecan & date mixture out of the food processor, and transfer into a mixing bowl.
  • Add carrots, oats, coconut flakes, cinnamon & vanilla and knead together with your hands.
  • Roll into balls with your hands, making approximately 12.
  • Store in the fridge to keep hardened.
