Method

  1. In a small bowl, cover chopped dates with hot water and soak for 10 minutes to soften, then drain the water off.
  2. Add carrots, oil, oats, ground almonds, cinnamon, ginger and soaked dates to a food processor. Blitz until combined and mixture has come together. If the mixture is very wet and sticky, add more oats.
  3. Roll mixture into balls a heaped teaspoon at a time and coat with a small amount of coconut. Place in the fridge for at least 2 hours.
  4. Store in the fridge and eat within 5 days.

Tips

  • This recipe can also be made using a bowl and your hands, instead of a food processor. After draining the dates, use a fork to mash and form a date puree before adding to the bowl.
  • To make this recipe nut-free, use an extra half cup of oats instead of ground almonds.
  • The finished balls freeze well.
