Carrot Oat Energy Bites
Yield 50 balls


  • 3 medium carrots
  • 1 Cup oats1 TBSP coconut oil or other light flavoured oil
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 Cup sunflower seeds
  • 1/2 Cup dates
  • 1/2 tsp  ginger dried
  • Desiccated coconut for rolling

  1. Place carrots in a sturdy food processor and blitz until very finely chopped
  2. Add remaining ingredients, excluding the desiccated coconut and blitz until the mixture comes together into a large ball. This will take some time, 5 or so minutes of blitzing but be patient it will get there
  3. Using a teaspoon form balls, the mixture will be quite sticky (becuase of the water content of the fresh carrot) , but the texture improves once you roll in coconut. Get the kids involved they will love the mess
  4. Roll the balls in desiccated coconut
  5. Refrigerate


The balls will be quite soft when first made as the mixture is quite warm for them blitzing. Refrigerate for a good few hours and this will improve immensely.

Technically coconut oil is a nut product, although coconut is significantly lower in allergenicity than other nuts. However to be entirely nut free opt for another mild flavoured oil
