Raw Teff Carrot Cake Bites

Ingredients

1.5 cups peeled and finely grated carrots

4. Return the walnut crumbs to the food processor together with the grated carrot and pulse through until a loose dough has formed.
5. Add Teff flour and pulse to combine.
6. Scoop out a heaped teaspoon, roll into balls with hands and place on a plate or baking sheet. Repeat until all dough is used.
7. Roll in popped Teff or shredded coconut.
