Servings 20 bites


  • 1 1/2 cups rolled oats
  • 1 cup puffed quinoa
  • 1/4 cup hemp protein powder
  • 1/4 cup sunflower seed butter
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup plain unsweetened oat milk
  • 1/4 cup cashews chopped
  • 2 tbsp crystalized ginger diced
  • 1 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp ground turmeric
  • 1 pinch Himalayan salt


  • Add the sunflower seed butter, milk, maple syrup, ground ginger, turmeric, and salt to a bowl and whisk well to combine.
  • Add the remaining ingredients to the bowl, and stir until it's all come together and the ingredients are evenly distributed.
  • To form the balls, scoop a slightly heaping tablespoon of the mixture and roll into balls (making the recipe with 1 1/2 cups rolled oats = 20 energy bites). Since the mixture is quite sticky, it can help to have slightly wet hands when rolling it into balls. Put in a single layer in a dish or on a plate, and refrigerate for about 20 minutes before transferring to an airtight container.
