Ginger Cinnamon Energy Balls

Have been so obsessed with these that I keep making huge batches since December! They have quite a deep flavour through the different spices and are still quite light and gentle thanks to the cashews. The ginger adds this amazing tangy twist to the whole thing and is just to die for in combination with cinnamon!!! Stay tuned for a variation coming soon!

200gr medjool dates* 
200gr cashews
50gr oats
2 teaspoons ginger
2 teaspoons of cinnamon
tablespoons melted coconut oil

Place the cashews in a food processor and pulse until they are quite thinly crushed, but not yet flour. Melt the coconut oil in a saucepan on low heat. Remove the pits from the dates and add the rest of the ingredients, including the oil to the processor and mix well until nicely even. Take out about a tablespoon of the mixture and roll into a ball. Once you have finished rolling up the entire mixture place the energy balls into the freezer for an hour which makes them harden. Afterwords they can be stored in the fridge.

*medjool dates are much softer and juicier than normal dates so they just make the world of difference in this recipe. However if you use normal dates make sure to soak them in water before processing them.
