  • 6 Medjool dates, pitted
  • 3 carrots, quartered
  • 1/2 cup walnuts
  • 1/2 cup shredded, unsweetened coconut
  • 1/2 cup gluten-free rolled oats
  • 2 Tbsp honey
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger


  1. Blend all ingredients in a food processor until well combined and sticky, but not a paste.
  2. Use wet palms to roll the carrot “dough” into balls. 
  3. Optional: pour extra shredded coconut into a small bowl, and roll the balls in the coconut to coat the outside.
  4. Store in the refrigerator for up to a week.


This recipe is gluten-free and vegetarian. Rolled oats (not gluten-free) may be freely substituted, as desired.

For vegan, gluten-free carrot cake bites, substitute maple syrup for the honey.
