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.
- 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
- 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.
- Roll the mixture into balls and place on a tray lined with parchment paper.
- Place in the freezer for 10-15 minutes. (This step is optional)
- Keep leftover energy balls stored in the fridge for up to 2 weeks and the freezer for up to 3 months.
- These are best stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
- These energy balls will last in the fridge for about 2 weeks and can also be frozen for 3 months.
- Other nuts and seeds can be substituted in equal amounts, but the flavors will change.
- I typically use the common Deglet Noor date, but Medjool dates will work as well.
