Zest from ½ organic orange
100 g walnut/almonds lightly roasted (omit roasting for completely raw bites)

Add everything besides the carrots in a food processor and blend until you have a well mixed dough. Add the carrots and pulse until the carrots are mixed into the dough, but still has some chunky texture.
Refrigerate for 1 hour and gently use your palms to shape small energy balls. Roll the balls in whatever crunch you prefer, I used grated coconut and ground almonds.
