Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup almonds, walnuts, or pecans
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup Medjool dates (7-8 large dates)
  • 1 TBSP molasses (blackstrap or regular)
  • 3/4 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/4 tsp each nutmeg, allspice, and cloves
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • almond flour or fine coconut flakes for coating, if desired

Instructions

  1. Pulse the nuts in the food processor until fine, like coarse sand. Add all other ingredients and blend until a ball of dough forms.

  2. Roll into 1-inch balls. If desired, put some almond flour or coconut in a bowl, and swirl some balls around until coated, for decoration. Dipping halfway in melted chocolate would also be delicious, as ginger and chocolate is a really yummy combo.

  3. Store in a container in the fridge or at room temp for 3-4 days.
