Raw Chocolate Ginger Power Balls
Gluten Free - Raw - Grain Free - Low Sugar - Vegan Friendly - Anti Inflammatory
- 1 cup walnuts (soaked overnight)
- 6 tbl raw cacao powder
- 4 tbl sunflower butter
- 3 tbl hemp seeds
- 1/4 tsp pink or sea salt
- 2 tsp bee pollen powder (optional but amazing flavor and energy boost)
- 1 tsp ginger powder
- 1/2 c soaked and pitted dates (soaked overnight)
Drain and rinse the walnuts and dates. In the bowl of a food processor blend the walnuts and pitted dates until a paste is formed adding a small amount of water as needed if too dry to blend.
Add the remaining ingredients to the mixing bowl and blend until smooth. Transfer the dough into a bowl and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
Add 2 tbl of raw cacao to a plate. Using a small disher or two large spoons roll quarter size balls in your hands and then roll in the cacoa powder to coat. Pass back and forth from one hand to the other to allow the excess cacao to fall off.
Place on a plate and get ready for snacking. Any leftovers keep covered in the fridge. You can also make these in advance and keep these in a ziploc bag in your freezer and take them out as you need them. Leave them to thaw out for an hour or so before eating. This is also a great solution for travel. Bring the frozen snacks in your bag and they will be thawed in time when your hunger strikes.
You can also roll these in unsweetened shredded coconut or ground nuts.
