1. Add the carrots into a food processor and blend until finely chopped. Transfer to a bowl.

2. In the food processor, add the pecans and coconut. Pulse to form a sandy texture. Add the oats and dates and process again until the texture is sandy. Add the remaining ingredients and blend until a dough has formed.

3. Shape the dough into tablespoon-sized balls. Repeat until all cake mixture has been used.

4. Place the shredded coconut in a shallow dish and roll each ball in the coconut to coat. Store in an airtight container. These will keep for 1 to 2 weeks in the fridge.
