Carrot Macadamia Coconut Honey Raw Balls

Pin It


Recently I saw a photo posted from Foodie and the Family for Carrot Cake  Bites, courtesy of Daily Bites.


The recipe and photo inspired me to make a special treat for my kids and husband! We have been very cautious as what nuts we use, and have been favoring Macadamia nuts these days due to the omega 6:3 ratio. Macadamia nuts also contains all essential amino acids, and contains healthy fibers. Overall they are best for us!




Ingredients:

  • 1 cup of Macadamia nuts
  • 1/3 cup of Unsweetened Coconut shredded
  • 1/4 to 1/3 cup of Honey, depends on desire of sweetness
  • One carrot shredded, about 1/3 of a cup.
  • 10 dates pitted, and soaked in water for 5 minutes to soften
  • 1 tablespoon of Olive Oil
  • 2 tablespoon of Coconut to roll balls in

Directions:


In a blender process Macadamia Nuts, and then simply individually add each item. Roll into tiny balls and then on a plate roll spread enough shredded coconut and roll to coat!


Serve and enjoy! Pin It

  1. Mmm, these look great! Think a dash of cinnamon would add to the flavour? Carrot has never looked sweeter. : )

  3. Thanks Guys!!! They were yummy and went fast! Alex, I think Cinnamon would be an absolute in this recipe. I would do only a dash too. Next time I make it I may add a little 1/4 tsp of vanilla extract too! So many possibilities!
