This healthy Lemon Ginger Energy Balls recipe is a great way to combat the effects of nausea when going through chemo or during pregnancy. Their soothing slightly sweet lemony ginger taste is packed with protein which makes them a perfect light snack for everyone.
1 1/2 cup of quick cooking oats
1/2 cup raw cashews
3 tablespoons no sugars added peanut butter
2 tablespoons real maple syrup
zest from 2 lemons divided in half
juice from one lemon
2 teaspoons fresh finely grated ginger
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon pink Himalayan salt
- First, add the oats to your food processor and process until a fine flour forms. Toss in the raw cashews and pulse until finely ground as well.
- Add all remaining ingredients except for half of the lemon zest to the food processor and pulse until a thick, uniform dough forms. This will take about a minute or two.
- Use a 2 tbsp scoop to measure out each ball, and roll each ball in between your hands until it forms an even circle. Roll each ball in the other half of the lemon zest to coat lightly.
- Store these bites in the fridge for up to 10 days, or in the freezer for up to a month. If you opt for the freezer, let each ball thaw for 5-10 minutes before enjoying.
