  • 1 large carrot, peeled and diced into large pieces
  • 10 large dates, pitted (about a cup)
  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 1 cup sweetened coconut
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt


  • In a food processor, pulse the carrot until finely diced. Add in the remaining ingredients and process until mixture starts to form a ball. If too dry, add in up to a tablespoon of water until a ball forms.
  • Use a cookie scoop to measure out batter and roll into balls. You should be able to make about 24 balls. Refigerate to firm up. Store in an airtight container in the refigerator for up to a week.


These are excellent make ahead snacks that are healthy and satisfying. This recipe serves as a great base and can be modified by adding in raisins, mini chocolate chips, or swiping the peanut butter for a different nut butter.
