Everything there is to love about carrot cake made into 2-bite, no-bake truffles. Our plant-powered, vegan treats are brimming with heart-healthy omega-3 fats, and free of added sugar thanks to naturally sweet dates. Use the smallest setting of your box grater or food processor's grating attachment to grate the carrots into fine, fluffy pieces. Cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg compose the heady spice trinity, so don’t be shy about adding extra, if you like. Enjoy these truffles for a snack or dessert, or share them with family and friends for easy Easter entertaining.

How to Make It
Place walnuts, pecans, dates, and pineapple in a high-power food processor. Process until almost paste-like. Add 1 cup coconut, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and salt. Process until combined. Turn mixture out into a bowl.
Use a paper towel to blot excess water from carrots. Add carrots to date mixture and mix to combine. Form mixture into 24 round truffles; roll in shredded coconut flakes to coat, if desired. Chill until firm, about 30 minutes.
