These are such a great, nourishing snack when you become hungry at afternoon teatime.
- 3/4 cup almonds
- 1/4 up pumpkin seeds
- 1/4 cup sunflower seeds
- 1/4 cup Honey
- 2 Tbsp almond butter, or tahini
- 2 Tbsp plain ghee (can substitute with coconut oil)
- 2 Tbsp shredded coconut, plus 1/2 cup extra for covering
- 2-4 Tbsp cacao powder
- 1 tsp cinnamon powder
- 1/2 tsp cardamom powder
- 3/4 tsp ginger powder
- 1/2 tsp turmeric powder
- Pinch of salt (sea salt or pink himalayan)
- Grind up the almonds, pumpkin seeds and sunflower seeds in the food processor/coffee grinder until they become a fine powder. Then add them to the mixing bowl.
- Add in the cacao powder, coconut, cinnamon, turmeric, ginger, cardamom, and salt. Stir until all of the ingredients are evenly mixed.
- Add in the honey, almond butter or tahini and plain ghee/coconut oil. Mix everything together using clean hands. It’s easier to wet your hands first to avoid the mixture sticking too much.
- Once you have roiled your energy balls, place them in the bowl of coconut and roll it around until it is fully coated. Then place the finished energy ball on a plate or in a container that is large enough for about 18 balls.
- Once you are done, place the balls in the freezer for 1-2 hours to get them nice and solid before serving.
- For storage you can keep them in the freezer or refrigerator, depending on the consistency you prefer.
- Have a play around with the spices and see what you like best. Other suggestions are to add powders of garam masala, chilli & ashwaghanda.
