These vegan energy balls are a great vegan snack
When I first did Veganuary (back in 2016 when I first followed a vegan diet for the month of January) I found that when I got hungry between meals it was hard to find snacks that filled me up.
I soon learnt that the answer was to be prepared.
While it's not always possible to have a homemade snack, it's definitely a good idea to plan ahead and make your own when you can.
These cashew and ginger balls are so easy to make and are perfect for transporting to work. The only difficultly is stopping at just one...
For a less healthy vegan snack try these vegan flapjacks.

How to make cashew and ginger vegan energy balls
These vegan cashew and ginger balls are ridiculously easy to make.
You will however need a food processor to make them. You can make them in a high powered blender if you have one but I think you get better results with a food processor.
You'll get the best results if you use medjool dates. They are just the right level of stickiness. If your dates seem a bit dry then you may need to soak them for 30 minutes in hot water before making this recipe.
Cashew and ginger vegan energy balls
- 200 g medjool dates pitted and roughly chopped
- 100 g cashews
- 100 g oats
- 2 tsp ground ginger
- 1 inch piece fresh ginger peeled and finely chopped
- Place all the ingredients into a food processor and pulse until well combined. The mixture should form a sticky dough.
- Use your hands to roll into 12 balls - you may want to lightly oil your hands as it can be quite sticky.
- Place in the fridge for an hour before serving. Store in the fridge in an airtight container.
