Cashew – ginger energy balls

Starting my morning with these incredible cashew – ginger energy balls. They smell like cake and are so creamy.To make a batch of 15 energy balls, you’ll need:

1 cup of cashews

1 cup of oats

1 cup of dates

Generous thumb size ginger – peeled

1/2 tsp cinnamon

Simply whizz all ingredients in a food processor and roll into balls.

If you don’t have a food processor, use a blender and grind nuts and oats before adding the rest of the ingredients. Blender will make a bit more chunkier dough, but it will still be just as nice.

Simple hazelnut – cocoa energy balls

These hazelnut energy balls are a dream! Hazelnuts and oats are high in magnesium, which helps prevent heart attacks and strokes by relaxing blood vessels, aiding the heart muscle and regulating blood pressure.

This recipe uses 5 simple ingredients and will make approx 25 – 30 energy balls:

2 cup of oats

1 cup of hazelnuts

2 cup of dates

6 tbsp raw cocoa powder

6 tbsp coconut oil – melted

Pre-heat the oven to 180C. Roast hazelnuts for 8 mins. Take out of the oven & rub off most of the skin. This is important as hazelnut skins can add bitterness.

Add all ingredients to a food processor and blend until the mixture forms a sticky dough.

Roll into balls and enjoy! Store these energy balls in an airtight container.
