Ginger, Pear and Pistachio Balls Recipe

Makes 18 balls

Ingredients

• 1 cup pitted dates
• 1 cup dried pears
• 1/2 cup raw cashews
• 1/2 cup whole, raw pistachios, plus 1/2 cup coarsely chopped
• 1/2 cup gluten-free quick oats
• 1 Tbsp. cashew butter
• 2 tsp. ground ginger

 

 Directions

In a food processor, combine the dates, pears, cashews, whole pistachios, oats, cashew butter, ginger and 3 tablespoons of water and process on high speed for 2 to 3 minutes, until a thick, sticky mass forms. You may need to add another 2 to 3 tablespoons of water.

Spread the chopped pistachios on a large plate.

Using a tablespoon, scoop the mixture and, with clean wet hands, roll into a ball between your palms. Roll the ball in the chopped pistachios to lightly coat and then set on a separate plate. Repeat with the remaining mixture until you have 18 balls.

Place the balls in the freezer to set for 30 minutes. Store in the refrigerator, or at room temperature, until required.

• 1/2 cup dried cranberries

Roasted Almond-Butter Bars Recipe

 Makes 10 to 12

Ingredients

Apple puree is a great way to sweeten lots of recipes without adding refined sugar. Simply peel and core red apples and chop them into bite-size pieces. Place in a large saucepan with 3/4 inches of water. Simmer for 40 minutes, or until very soft, then blend until smooth. Store in the fridge for up to 5 days, or freeze in portions.

• 2 Tbsp. coconut oil, plus more for the pan
• 2 Tbsp. chia seeds
• 12 medjool dates, pitted
• 2 1/2 cups rolled oats
• 5 Tbsp. apple puree
• 2 tsp. ground cinnamon
• 4 Tbsp. hulled hemp seeds
• 3 Tbsp. roasted almond butter
• 1/2 cup unsweetened coconut chips
• 1/2 cup raisins
• Pinch of salt
 

 Directions

Preheat the oven to 400°. Use some coconut oil to oil an 11- x 7-inch baking pan.

Put the chia seeds in a glass with 1/2 cup of water. Let this sit for 20 minutes until the seeds expand and form a gel.

Put the dates and the 2 Tbsp. coconut oil into a food processor and whiz.

Mix all the other ingredients, including the chia gel, in a bowl, then stir in the dates until everything is evenly blended.

Press into the prepared pan and bake for about 20 minutes, or until golden brown.
