Carrot Cake Energy Bites


1 cup raw sunflower seeds (hulled)

1 cup unsweetened shredded coconut + ⅓ cup for rolling

½ teaspoon cinnamon

½ teaspoon fine sea salt

12 soft Medjool dates (pitted and soaked if dry)

⅔ cup carrots, chopped

2 teaspoons maple syrup, to taste


In a processor, combine sunflower seeds, coconut, cinnamon, and salt, then pulse to a fine meal.

Add dates and carrots, then pulse until combined and sticks together.

Taste and add more maple syrup if needed.

If too dry, add more maple syrup; if too moist, add more coconut or chill for 20 minutes to firm up.

Use a tablespoon to scoop the mixture, then roll into 1" balls.

Roll in coconut to coat outside.

Store in refrigerator in an air-tight container for up to 5 days. Enjoy!
