Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup walnuts
  • 1/3 cup oats - gluten free if desired
  • 1 tablespoon ground flax seed - I recommend using whole flax seeds and grinding them yourself using a coffee grinder*
  • 1/2 cup shredded carrots
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
  • 1 cup packed medjool dates - if not soft, soak in water for 30 minutes and drain
  • 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

Instructions

  • Add walnuts, oats and ground flax seed to a food processor. Process until fine. Add shredded carrots and blend again for 10 seconds. Stir and add coconut flakes, dates, nutmeg and cinnamon. Process until blended.
  • Using your hands, form  into balls and refrigerate in an airtight container. Makes 12 balls.

Notes

  • *For the flax seeds, I recommend using  whole  flax seeds to start, and grind them using a small  coffee grinder. Pre-packaged ground flax seed can also work, but once ground, they have a short shelf life and are also not as healthy. I always keep a jar of whole flax seeds in my fridge that I can grind at any time.
  • If you don't have flax seed on hand, you can also use chia seeds.
  • Make sure you are using a food processor for this recipe, and  not  a blender. A blender will not have enough surface area for the ingredients to move around.
