On one of my recent trips to the supermarket I got a great deal on carrots. yes i’m the woman who gets super excited about deals on vegetables!
I bought a big bag of organic carrots. Now I have a whole bag of carrots that need to be eaten. One of the things I plan to do is make some carrot juice for my hubby. The other thing other than using them for salads and spring rolls, I decided to make sweet healthy treats. They are so quick to make you will be done in 10 to 15 minutes. Double up on the ingredients if you need to make more.
1 Small Carrots
1 cup medjool dates
1/2 cup of raisins
grated zest of oranges or lemon
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground ginger
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/2 cup shredded coconut
Squeeze out any excess liquid from carrots.
Place all the ingredients in a food processor apart from the shredded coconut.
Line a plate or baking dish with parchment paper.
Roll the mixture into a small ball. Put the shredded coconut into a bowl and roll each ball in the coconut to coat.
Place the ball on the lined plate or baking dish and refrigerate overnight.
