Cinnamon Ginger Energy Balls

Happy Tuesday, friends! This week’s recipe is for those of you looking for something that is sweet, easy and guaranteed to be a crowd-pleaser.  It is about time I put these out there for everyone to enjoy because they have gotten rave reviews time and time again.  I am usually not a big fan of “healthy sweets” but these energy balls are GREAT if you are weaning off the processed sweets and need a little treat  to keep you from diving headfirst into the carton of ice cream.  Or, if you get the occasional sweet tooth that you want to satisfy without all the added junk in your typical store-bought granola bar.  Either way, I hope you enjoy!


  • ¾ cups pitted dates
  • ½ cup almonds (raw)
  • ¼ cup cashews (raw)
  • ½ tsp cinnamon (ground)
  • ½ tsp fresh grated ginger
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • ¼ tsp sea salt


  1. Add all the ingredients to a food processor and blend until well mixed and sticky.
  2. Transfer to a medium-size mixing bowl. Form into even balls with your hands and store in the fridge or freezer until ready to enjoy.

This recipe makes about 10 balls and they last in the fridge for about a week. However, there is no chance they will last that long!
