  • 1 large carrot
  • 1 cup walnuts (See notes for substitutions)
  • 1 cup dates (about 12 medjool dates)
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger
  • scant 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 TBSP hemp or chia seeds
  • shredded coconut to roll them in, if desired


  1. In a food processor, pulse the carrot until finely chopped.

  2. Add remaining ingredients, and run the food processor until the mixture begins to stick to the sides and no large chunks of date remain.

  3. Form into 20-30 balls about 1-inch in size. How many you end up with largely depends on how much dough you eat out of the food processor. Roll in shredded coconut if desired.

  4. Store in the fridge in a covered container.

Recipe Notes

You can try subbing sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, cashews, or pecans for the walnuts if needed.

Soak dates for 10 minutes in warm water if they are not soft and fresh.
