COCONUT & GINGER ENERGY BALLS

COCONUT & GINGER ENERGY BALLS
Energy Balls are the answer to all of my snacking problems. I make sure to always have a batch of these protein packed bites in the freezer so when my stomach starts to growl, or I am experiencing one of my 6pm ravenous states, they are on hand and ready to eat.
Ingredients
  • 1 cup dates
  • 2 tbsp chopped raw Brazil nuts
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1/2 tbsp honey or other sweetener
  • 2 tbsp fresh ginger grated
Instructions
  1. Place the dates in a food processor or blender and blend for 1 minute. Add the Brazil Nuts, shredded coconut, honey and ginger and continue to blend until all nuts/dates have broken down into uniform size and a sticky batter has formed (this can take anywhere from 1-5 minutes depending on the strength of your machine)
  2. Scoop out tablespoon sized amounts of the mixture and roll into balls, depending on the stickiness you can wet your hands a touch to make the balls easier to roll
  3. Store the balls in the fridge in a sealed container for approximately a week, or you can keep them in the freezer for a month.
