  • 1/2 cup pecans
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded carrots
  • 1 cup unsweetened shredded coconut divided
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg


  1. Soak the dates for 30 minutes in hot water.

  2. Add the dates and pecans into a food processor, and pulse until it becomes a dough. Add in the shredded carrots, 3/4 cup of the coconut, and the coconut oil. Pulse the mixture again until the ingredients are just incorporated.

  3. Roll the mixture into balls, and then roll them through remaining shredded coconut. 

  4. Place in the fridge for 2 hours. Store in an airtight container in the fridge for 2 weeks.

Recipe Notes

If you prefer a little more sweetness, feel free to add 1 tbsp maple syrup or honey. I find the dates give this recipe the perfect amount of natural sweetness.
