Gingernut Energy Bites

Like the biscuit, only better.

These nuggets of sunshine are chewy with a delicate kick from the ginger; they are perfect if you’re feeling peckish or after a gym session to refuel and replenish your strength.

Packed full of healthy fats and protein, and made from only 4 ingredients, these are achievable for every dummy out there and can be personalized to fit all tastebud expectations. I have decided to use ground ginger and shape them into bites, but feel free to add cacao, vanilla, or even use your favorite nuts and seeds.

Ingredients:

200g of pitted dates

200g of cashews

50g of oats (use gluten-free if necessary)

2 heaped teaspoons of ground ginger

Pinch of sea salt (optional)

Method:

Soak your dates in hot water for 3 minutes (or until soft) and risen, if they are soft already you can skip this step.

Pulse the oats and cashews in a food processor to form a coarse flour.

Next, add the ginger, soft dates and sea salt, and blend until dough consistency forms.

Now be creative, press the mix into a tin, refrigerate and cut into bars, or roll into balls of your desired size. You can also chop some nuts and coat the bites in them for a crispy exterior.

Best Before: in an airtight container, these bites will keep for a good month, however, if you choose to uses fresh ingredients such as ginger or fruits, then refrigerated they will last for around a week. In all honesty, I wouldn’t worry about the time, as after 3 days you’ll be wanting to whip-up another batch!

As always, I’d love to see your creations so don’t forget to tag me and my new lifestyle account on Instagram if you give the recipe a go; @wiki.jazzzzz and @wikis.vital.way
