Having a naturally sweet energy ball at the ready in your fridge is brilliant if you are trying to cut down on your chocolate and candy intake – by filling up on the good stuff you won’t crave the rubbish! And the great thing about these Pineapple and Ginger Energy Balls is not only will they give you the sugar fix you are looking for, they will also give you a slow-release boost rather than a sugar high followed by a crash.
The ginger in these gives them more of a ginger biscuit tang, it doesn’t make them hot and spicy. The warmth is delicious with the sweetness of the pineapples and pecan nuts which I think taste so much like maple syrup. These balls are so much cheaper than those which you can pick up in shops but honestly take minutes to make – and very little washing up! Just measure everything into your blender and blitz. You might want to double up the recipe though because they don’t hang around for long. These are vegan but can also be made gluten-free if you use gluten-free oats.
