Ingredients

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

 

Instructions

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.
