Fusion Ayurveda Energy balls recipe

These are such a great, nourishing snack when you become hungry at afternoon teatime.

 

Ingredients

  • 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)

 

Directions

  1. 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.
  2. Add in the cacao powder, coconut, cinnamon, turmeric, ginger, cardamom, and salt. Stir until all of the ingredients are evenly mixed.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. Once you are done, place the balls in the freezer for 1-2 hours to get them nice and solid before serving.
  6. For storage you can keep them in the freezer or refrigerator, depending on the consistency you prefer.
  7. Have a play around with the spices and see what you like best. Other suggestions are to add powders of garam masala, chilli & ashwaghanda.
