Energy balls are a great vegan snack
When I first became vegan I found it hard to find healthy snacks that filled me up.
I soon learnt that the answer was to be organised.
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...

Are these easy to make?
These vegan cashew and ginger balls are ridiculously easy to make.
You will however need a food processor to make them. Alternatively you can make them in a high powered blender if you have one. Personally I prefer to use a food processor as I think it gives better results.
What ingredients do you need?
You will need the following ingredients to make these energy balls:
- medjool dates
- cashew nuts
- ground ginger
- fresh ginger
What kind of dates are best for energy balls?
You'll get the best results if you use medjool dates. They are just the right level of stickiness. Plus they taste absolutely delicious.
If you are using a different kind of dates and they seem a little on the dry side it's a good idea to soak them in hot water before starting this recipe.
