Gingersnap Cranberry Balls

Since the raw brownies  I made a few weeks ago were a success I thought I’d try some of the other energy balls I saw on pinterest. But since I cannot follow a recipe verbatim to save my life I drew inspiration from a few recipes and decided to do my own thing.

Gingersnap Cranberry Balls

20 Trader Joe’s Triple Ginger snap cookies

1/2 cup walnuts, ground

1/2 cup dried cranberries

2 TB Maple Syrup

8 Medjool Dates (SEEDS REMOVED)

Toss everything in food processor, process unti everything is incorporated, roll into 3/4 inch balls, should make at least 20 balls

Here is your SCHWEET nutrition facts for 1 ball, 90 kcals isn’t too bad.

    So gingersnaps are my most favorite cookie of ALL TIME. If Amanda, Jackson, and I ever find our way to your side of the state to visit, I humbly request we have these for dessert 🙂

      Consider it done! I think gingersnaps are terribly underrated, I’m glad they are your fave. Miss you guys (also you have an outstanding invite whenever you feel the urge to visit)!
