If you adore the hot, stimulating bite of ginger, then you’ll love these soft, gooey, rich confections infused with stamina and rejuvenating, libido-enhancing, stress-reducing and deeply nourishing herbs and bee pollen. They make great ‘kissing treats’ as they leave a lingering spicy-sweet taste in your mouth.
Makes approximately 28 balls
- 1 ¼ cups of almonds
- ½ cup crystallized ginger pieces
- 1/3 cup raw honey
- 4 tbsp bee pollen
- 1 tbsp eleuthero root powder
- 1 tbsp fo-ti root powder
- ¼ tsp sea salt
- ½ cup finely shredded unsweetened coconut
- Grind the almonds to the consistency of a medium-to-fine-grained meal in a food processor or nut and seed grinder.
- Dice the crystallized ginger into ¼-inch cubes. Transfer the almond meal and ginger to a medium-sized bowl and add the honey, bee pollen, eleuthero, fo-ti and sea salt.
- Use your hands to mash all the ingredients together until a semicohesive ball forms. The dough should be very sticky – if it’s too dry, add a little more honey, and if it’s too moist, grind and add a little more almond meal.
- Grease your hands well with coconut oil. Pinch off pieces of dough, roll them into marble-sized balls about one inch in diameter and set them aside on waxed paper.
- Re-oil your hands as necessary. Put the shredded coconut in a shallow bowl and roll each ball in it.
- For the best flavour and consistency, let the balls chill in the fridge for 24 hours before eating. Store in a tightly sealed container in the refrigerator and consume within two or three weeks, or store in the freezer for up to three months.
