Ginger Lemon Energy Balls

These are super easy to make and packed with so much delicious goodness. I love fresh ginger. I like to add fresh slices in when I make tea (green tea, fennel, chamomile… etc), and I’m trying to find new ways to incorporate it in my every day foods as well.

These worked perfectly and opened my eyes to the endless combinations I can create. I will be making more combinations soon. I love having little snacks around.

So how do you make them? You literally throw everything in a bowl and squish away! My squishy! (Finding Nemo anyone?)

After you squish all the ingredients together and get the consistency you are looking for, tear off pieces (about ½ tablespoon in size) and roll them into small balls in between your hands.

After all your balls are made, toss them one by one into a small bowl of desiccated shredded coconut and roll around to coat.  Done!

I linked (most of) the ingredients I used, I am an avid Amazon shopper, but feel free to use a different powder, nut butter, nut… etc. Or switch up the ingredients completely and create a whole new flavor profile. Get creative!
