Raw Carrot Cake Bites

1/2 c. dates, soaked in hot water for 10 minutes
1/2 c. raw walnuts
1/2 c. carrot, finely grated
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/8 tsp. dried ginger
1/8 tsp. nutmeg
1/4 tsp. lemon zest
1/2. c. unsweetened coconut shreds, for rolling.

Instructions: Pulse walnuts in food processor until they are broken up into tiny pieces. Add the rest of the ingredients except coconut. Process until combined. Roll dough into balls and then roll in coconut. Place on wax paper-lined cookie sheet and then put into refrigerator so they can firm up a bit. (I did this overnight)
