Prep time: 10 Minutes
Fridge time: 30 Minutes
1 cup raw cashews
1 cup rolled oats
½ cup plums
½ cup dried apricots
½ cup unsweetened pineapple puree
¼ cup vanilla protein powder
¼ teaspoon salt
1 tsp. cinnamon
½ tsp. nutmeg
¼ tsp. ground cloves
2 medium carrots, finely grated
½ cup nuts finely chopped (pecans, walnuts, almonds, or a mix)
½ cup raisins
1 cup unsweetened coconut, finely shredded
Pulse cashews, oats, plums, apricots, pineapple, protein powder, and spices in a food processor for 1-2 minutes until a sticky dough forms.
In a medium bowl, mix the dough, carrots, nuts, and raisins together. Place the coconut shreds in a shallow bowl. Roll dough into balls (slightly wet palms work best), roll each ball in the coconut, and place on a sheet pan.
Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes to set and store in an airtight container in the fridge.
