Ingredients

  • 2 cups shredded carrots
  • 1 cup gluten free rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut, plus more for rolling
  • 1 cup cashew butter
  • 3 tablespoons chia seeds
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Method

  1. Add the shredded carrot to your food processor and pulse until it is a fine grated texture. Then, remove the carrot from the food processor and transfer it to a small bowl.
  2. Add the oats and shredded coconut to the food processor and pulse until the oats are slightly broken down into somewhat of flour.
  3. Add all of the remaining ingredients and the grated carrot  to the food processor. Pulse the food processor until all of the ingredients are well combined and a dough has formed. Scrape down the sides of the food processor if needed.
  4. Next, transfer the dough to the freezer for five minutes.
  5. Once the mix has chilled for a few minutes, use a tablespoon sized cookie dough scoop to scoop the dough and roll them into energy bites.
  6. Roll the balls in extra shredded coconut if you would like and then enjoy!
