Chocolate Ginger Balls

This is a warming little treat, filled with the richness of nuts, chocolate, and the heat of ginger. It’s fairly quick to make, and keeps for weeks in the freezer… that is, if they last that long. (And no, they don’t freeze. In fact, the balls are the perfect consistency when kept there).

Chocolate. Ginger. What more is there to say?

Servings: 20 balls


  • Food processor


  • 1 c. cashews
  • 1 c. walnuts
  • 1/2 c. hemp seeds
  • 3 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1/2 c. raisins
  • 10 dates
  • 1 tsp molasses
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 4 drops ginger oil or 1-2 tbsp fresh ginger (or both..depending on your desired taste)
  • 1 tbsp water or non dairy milk
  • 1 tbsp coconut sugar
  • 1/4 tsp ginger powder


  • Blend nuts and cocoa powder in a food processor (NOT a blender. This is nearly impossible to do in a blender)
  • Add dates and raisins and blend. (If you're using fresh ginger, now would be the time to add it)
  • In a small dish, mix molasses/water/ginger oil, and then poor into the processor while it's blending to insure an even distribution of the oil. Blend until well mixed.
  • Roll into balls (to make about 20, use a tablespoons worth). Have a small bowl of water set aside to wet your hands with as you go to prevent the mixture sticking to your palms.
  • Mix coconut sugar and ginger powder in a small dish and lightly roll balls into said mixture. (You’ll typically have a more left over for more balls)
  • Chill.
  • Enjoy.
