Carrot Cake Raw Balls
makes 11 1 oz balls (weird, I know)
modified from Running with Spoons
3 dried dates
4 dried apricots
3 T coconut oil, melted
2 T maple syrup
1 t vanilla extract
1 C oats
1/4 C almond flour
1 C shredded carrot, about 1 1/2 carrots
1/4 t ground cinnamon
pinch ground ginger
pinch ground nutmeg
1/4 C unsweetened coconut flakes
In a heavy duty (trust me, make sure it’s durable) food processor, blend the dates, apricots, coconut oil, maple syrup, and vanilla extract. You want a soft paste here.
Add almond flour, shredded carrot, and spices. Blend until all ingredients come together as a slightly sticky dough.
Measure out 1 oz balls and roll around in a shallow bowl filled with unsweetened coconut flake. Store in the fridge or freeze!
