3/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
3/4 cup any nut you have on hand (walnuts, almonds, pecans)
4 small carrots, peeled and chopped into 2-3 inch pieces
1/4 cup hemp seeds
1/4 cup almond butter
1/4 cup gently melted coconut oil
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
1/4 tsp ground cloves
1/4 - 1/2 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
2 droppers full of liquid stevia (I used vanilla stevia, so I omitted the vanilla extract.)
Note: If you really don't like stevia, use an amount of xylitol to achieve the same sweetness. I would love to give you a measure, but I really don't like xylitol, so my experience with it is limited. I can tell you that two droppers full of vanilla stevia is very sweet. Make this recipe your own by tasting and adjusting the sweetness as needed.
Place all ingredients in a high powered food processor and process until fully combined.
Form mixture into 1 inch balls (bites) and roll in a little cinnamon or a bit more unsweetened shredded coconut.
Chill for a few hours or overnight. You can freeze the chilled bites in an airtight container in the freezer for a few months, but I guarantee they won't last that long.
Recipe yields approximately 24 "bites."
