Shopping List
  • 200 grams raw or dry-roasted cashews (1 2/3 cups)
  • 200 grams pitted medjool dates (about 11 dates)
  • 25 grams vegan protein powder of choice (about 5 tablespoons)
  • 25 grams rolled oats (about 5 tablespoons)
  • 33333333/100000000 cup vegan chocolate chips
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons ginger powder

Instructions
  1. Step 1: If your dates seem dry, soak them in warm water for 30 to 90 minutes until softened. Drain before using.
  2. Step 2: Combine all ingredients, except the chocolate, into a high-powered food processor. Pulse the ingredients until well combined, scraping down the sides as needed. The dough will be ready when it clumps up like a ball and no large cashew or date pieces remain.
  3. Step 3: Roll the dough into ping-pong sized balls.
  4. Step 4: Melt the chocolate chips and in a microwave-safe bowl (or double boiler) in 15 second intervals. Stir the chips between intervals, taking care that they do not burn. If you’re having trouble melting, you can add in a few tablespoons of coconut oil.
  5. Step 5: Drizzle or half-dunk the ginger balls into the melted chocolate. Place on a piece of parchment paper. Repeat this process with all remaining balls and then freeze to harden.
  6. Serve: Enjoy these directly out of the freezer or refrigerator for a chewy treat. Let it sit on the counter for a few minutes to soften.
