  • 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


  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.
