Quick, easy and delicious. These No-Bake Carrot Cake Balls pack a nutritional punch but satisfy the sweet tooth. Enjoy as a snack or as dessert. Make them nut free and freeze for a quick lunch box treat your kids will love.
1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
1/4 cup unsweet coconut for rolling
6 -7 dates (Medjool are the tastiest!)
3/4 cups walnuts (Substitute sesame or pumpkin seeds to make it nut free)
1/2 cup grated carrots
1/4 cup hemp seeds
1/4 honey (maple syrup can work too)
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp cloves
Reserve the 1/4 coconut in a shallow pan for rolling finished balls. Place the remainder of the ingredients in a food processor and process until fully combined. The mixture should be firm enough to form 1 inch balls. Roll balls in reserved coconut and reiterate for a few hours. Store in airtight containers in the fridge up to 7 days. Can also be frozen for up to 60 days.
