Carrot Cake Protein Balls

Carrot Cake Protein Balls

Ingredients

1 cup raw cashews
3/4 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup dates
4 ounces unsweetened applesauce
1 serving vanilla plant-based protein powder (about 35 grams)
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon cloves
1 carrot, grated
1/2 cup pecans (or walnuts)
1/3 cup rolled in unsweetened coconut

Directions

  1. Add the cashews, oats, dates, applesauce, protein powder, and spices to the food processor. Turn on until a choppy dough forms, several minutes.
  2. Add the grated carrot and pecans until thoroughly mixed. The dough will appear slightly sticky.
  3. Pour unsweetened shredded coconut into a bowl.
  4. Roll dough into balls, roll each one in the coconut, and place on a clean cookie sheet.
  5. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes to set. Store uneaten balls in an airtight container in the fridge.
