Ingredients

Instructions

  • Wash and peel 1-2 carrots (depending on size). Roughly chop and add to a food processor to shred them. Set shredded carrots aside in a large mixing bowl.
  • Halve dates and remove pit. Place dates in food processor, along with pecans, walnuts, cinnamon, ginger, and sea salt. Process until nuts are in tiny pieces. Add all processed ingredients into the mixing bowl with shredded carrots.
  • Add rolled oats and chia seeds to mixing bowl, and combine all ingredients together with a large spoon. You may need to add a few tablespoons of water to get things to stick together.
  • With a spoon, grab about a tbsp of mixture and roll into balls (about the size of a ping-pong ball). If you'd like, you can now roll these balls into shredded coconut.
  • Place energy bites onto a baking sheet, making sure to leave room between them so they don't stick together. Place in freezer for at least 30 minutes (you can store them in here too!)
  • Serve with a dollop of plain greek yogurt and creamy peanut butter, if desired. Enjoy!

Notes

*This recipe will make approximately 13 energy bites, depending on size.
