Ginger Energy Balls

Ginger Energy Balls

Course: Salads & Sides


  • 1 cup Rolled oats
  • 3/4 cup Almond butter
  • 1/2 cup Finely shredded unsweetened coconut
  • 1/2 cup Ground flaxseed meal
  • 1/4 cup Sesame seeds
  • 1/4 cup Maple syrup*
  • 1 tsp Ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp Ground ginger
  • 1/4 tsp Ground cloves
  • 1/4 tsp Salt


  • Add all of the ingredients to a large mixing bowl: oats, almond butter, coconut, flaxseed, sesame seeds, maple syrup, cinnamon, ginger, cloves, and salt. Stir by hand with a wooden spoon or spatula, until the mixture is incorporated and sticky. Place the bowl in the refrigerator for 10 minutes, or until the mixture is firm and easy to shape.
  • With damp hands, take 1 tablespoon of dough and shape it into a compact 1-inch ball (squeeze a little as needed) and place it on a plate. (Keep a bowl of water by your side, since the mixture is easier to handle with damp hands.) Repeat with the remaining batter. Enjoy immediately or store in the refrigerator for 2 weeks or freeze for 3 months.


*If you prefer not to use maple syrup, you can swap raw honey or 1/3 cup chopped Medjool dates. If using dates, puree them in the bowl of a food processor along with the almond butter first, then add the resulting paste to the bowl with the other ingredients.
Recipe swap—make them chocolate: Replace the spices with 2 teaspoons cocoa powder to make these full-fledged raw chocolate “cookies.”
