g & t energy balls

g & t energy balls

Ginger & Turmeric go hand in hand like... you guessed it good old Gin & Tonic! The combined taste and amazing immune boosting properties can transform any dish. With a hectic family life, various after school activities multiplied by the number of children, making sure healthy nutritious snacks are always in supply is key! The brand new G & T flavour has been approved by all.

 

ingredients

 

10 large medjool dates, soaked for 30mins
2 tablespoons chia seeds
1 teaspoon raw turmeric powder
2 tablespoon fresh ginger, grated or chopped thinly
1 cup gluten free oats ( we like to use Rude Health Sprouted porridge oats)
1/2 cup walnuts
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

 

method

 
  • In the bowl of a food processor, add the chopped dates and blitz to breakdown

  • Add all other ingredients and pulse until reaching a sticky paste

  • If it seems too dry, add a little of the reserved water from the soaked dates

  • If it seems too wet, add a little more oats

  • Pick up spoonfuls of mixture and roll between your hands

  • Lay on a baking sheet or dish

  • Once all the balls are formed, keep in the fridge to set and until you need them

 

The Health Boost Tip

These balls are entirely free of refined sugars, with chia seeds providing protein and the walnuts offering a good source of omega 3 essential fatty acids. Quick to prepare in advance as they are no-bake, these energy balls are a sure win-win of on-the-go nutrition for hectic days and summer picnics alike. The turmeric and ginger are anti-inflammatories which have been shown to help with pain and inflammation in the body – so the perfect snack for post-workout.
