Ginger is the taste of Christmas, a natural winter warmer, heating the body from the inside out. It’s great for the immune system and perfect for a buzz of nostalgia.

Inspired by this wonderful recipe on the wholefoodme blog I thought I’d prepare these and take them to my Uncle’s 60th birthday party as a vegan after dinner treat.

What started so well, with the macadamias grinding to a lovely rough meal, didn’t end that way!  The processor couldn’t handle the volume or bring it to the required dough.  In the end I had to leave the mixture at home and go almost empty handed to the party.

I instead turned the mixture into energy bar little bites.

Soaked dates add the sweetness and the moisture to bind the bars together

Instructions:

Begin by blending the nuts into a fine meal, then add the drained dates, coconut & powders. Blend until as fine as point as you can get to with your blender.  Take the mixture and make little balls and press them into little squares with your hands.

Put them in a little box or wrap some up and make them more portable!
