  • Place the dough in a bowl and stir through the carrot and pecans (may need to use hands to make sure it is evenly dispersed in the mix).
  • Pour coconut in a small bowl.
  • Roll dough into teaspoon sized balls and then coat with coconut.
  • Place in a container and set in the fridge for at least 30mins (good luck waiting that long to try one!!). Also able to keep in the freezer.
