A healthy snack inspired by a Spring-time favorite – carrot cake!

Make a batch, and store them in your fridge for days. Don’t be shocked if they get chowed down before you know it. With 1 full cup of carrots in this recipe, and all natural ingredients and sugars, it’s ok if you’re the sole reason they got chowed down that fast, because it’s a recipe you certainly can feel good about. I mean, it’s one way to eat your carrots 😉
Prep Time: 10 minutes
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
Food Processor / Blender
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.
