How to do it

  1. PLACE carrot chunks into the bowl of a food processor and pulse until finely chopped.
  2. ADD all other ingredients, then pulse until a sticky dough forms. You might have to push it down with a spatula a few times to help it along.
  3. SCOOP out dough and roll between your hands to form golf size balls. You should be able to shape about 16 balls.
  4. ROLL each ball into unsweetened desiccated coconut.
  5. REFRIGERATE for at least 15 minutes to firm up if desired or eat straight away.
