It’s Saturday night at 12pm do you know where your midnight snack is?

Lol in all seriousness though, this is it. She’s here, she’s sweet and she’s ready to do things to your taste buds.

We have elevated today’s experience with the addition of cardamom. These have a vastly well rounded depth of flavor, add in that mouth feel and you’ve really got your new go to.


  • 1 C. Gluten Free Oats

  • 1 - 1/5 C. Unsweetened Coconut Flakes 5 Dates (Soaked)

  • 2 Carrots

  • 1/4 C. Pistachios

  • 3 T. Hemp Seeds

  • 2 T. Spirulina

Top with:

  • 1/2 C. Unsweetened Coconut Flakes

The method: 

Remove pits from dates and soak in warm water for 10 mins. Peal and grate carrots, ginger, turmeric and zest orange. In a high speed blender (I just use my vita mix) add dry ingredients and pulse until pistachios are broken down into small nibs. Add soaked dates, carrots, ginger, turmeric and orange zest and blend until fully combined. If mix is too dense add 2 -3 T. of your date water and blend. Roll into 1" balls - toss in blended coconut and hemp seeds. Refrigerate for an hour before serving then enjoy!
