Ingredients:
3 cups of shredded carrot
1 cup Brazil nuts
1/3 cup of ground flax seeds
1/4 cup of raisins
1 scoop of your protein powder
7- 10 pitted dates ( depends how sweet you want it) soaked for 15 min in a hot water
Β½ cup shredded coconut
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla extract
Pinch of salt

Process:
Start by blitzing the Brazil nuts into small chunks. Then add shredded coconut and soaked dates. It can be a bit lumpy for better texture. Peel and grate your carrots and add to the mixture along with protein powder, ground flax seeds, cinnamon, vanilla extract and salt. Place the dough in the fridge for 20 min. After 20 minΒ  roll firmly into balls and press in shredded coconut .Place the balls back in the fridge for 1 hour. So delicious! Enjoy loads and loads.

Much love,
Hedi
