3 Medium Carrots
1 Cup Oats
1 Cup Sunflower Seeds
1/2 Cup Dates
1 tbsp Coconut Oil
1 tsp Cinnamon
1/2 tsp Ginger, Dried
Desiccated Coconut for Rolling
- Place carrots in a food processor and blitz until very finely chopped. (Or grate with a standard cheese grater)
- Add remaining ingredients, excluding the desiccated coconut and blitz until the mixture comes together into a large ball. This will take some time, 5 or so minutes of blitzing but be patient it will get there
- Using a teaspoon form balls, the mixture will be quite sticky (becuase of the water content of the fresh carrot) , but the texture improves once you roll in coconut.
- Roll the balls in desiccated coconut.
