Anti-Inflammatory Ginger Energy Balls


Description

These energy balls have delicious flavor from fresh ginger, cinnamon, allspice, cloves, and fresh orange juice. They make a healthy snack that is full of anti-inflammatory properties.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 cup almonds
  • 1/2 cup dates
  • 1/4 cup pumpkin seeds (pepitas)
  • 1/4 cup fresh orange juice (from one small orange)
  • 1 teaspoon peeled and chopped ginger
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves

Instructions

  1. Place all ingredients in the food processor and process until the ingredients are broken down and stick together when you press between your finger and thumb.
  2. Roll the mixture into balls and place on a tray lined with parchment paper.
  3. Place in the freezer for 10-15 minutes. (This step is optional)
  4. Keep leftover energy balls stored in the fridge for up to 2 weeks and the freezer for up to 3 months.

Notes

  1. These are best stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
  2. These energy balls will last in the fridge for about 2 weeks and can also be frozen for 3 months.
  3. Other nuts and seeds can be substituted in equal amounts, but the flavors will change.
  4. I typically use the common Deglet Noor date, but Medjool dates will work as well.
