Ingredients
  • 3 large Medjool dates, pitted (~40g)
  • 4 dried apricots (~26 g)
  • 2 Tbsp (30 ml) unsweetened applesauce
  • 2 Tbsp (30 ml) maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup (80 g) rolled oats
  • 1/4 cup (28 g) coconut flour

  • 1/8 tsp ground cardamon
  • 1/8 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/8 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1 cup (115 g) shredded carrots
  • unsweetened shredded coconut, for garnish
Directions
  1. Into the bowl of a food processor or high-speed blender, add dates, apricots, applesauce, maple syrup, and vanilla extract, processing until dates and apricots have broken down into smaller pieces and ingredients are well combined
  2. Add oats, coconut flour, spices, and shredded carrot, continuing to process until ingredients are well combined and the mixture sticks together easily.
  3. Add generous amount of shredded coconut to a shallow bowl. Using a heaping tablespoon, roll dough between your hands before rolling it in the coconut to coat. Set aside on a plate and repeat with remaining dough. Store balls in an airtight container in the fridge for best results, or freeze for longer periods of time.
