Carrot Oat Energy Bites

These energy bites are perfect for those people who struggle to get enough vegetables into their diet on the daily. You can make them in advance and store them in the fridge for up to three weeks in a air tight container. Next time you need a quick snack or even a healthier dessert you’ll have these made and ready to go! Give them a try, you’ll love them, I promise.

Ingredients:

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

  1. Place carrots in a food processor and blitz until very finely chopped. (Or grate with a standard cheese grater)
  2. 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
  3. 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.
  4. Roll the balls in desiccated coconut.
  5. Refrigerate.
