Delicious, no-bake gingerbread energy balls you can make in 5 minutes with protein powder, almond butter and molasses! No blending or baking required!



  • 1/2 cup drippy almond or cashew butter (60 g)
  • 1/3 cup vegan vanilla protein powder (35 g)
  • 1/4 cup ground flaxseed (28 g)
  • 3 tbsp blackstrap molasses (60 g)
  • 1 tbsp water (15 ml)
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger (1 g)
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon (1 g)
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt, optional


  1. Place all ingredients in a bowl and mix until it forms a thick dough.
  2. Use your hands to roll into balls.
  3. Place in the fridge for 20 minutes to firm and enjoy!


Store in a sealed container in the fridge for up to 1 week or freezer for up to 2 weeks. Okay at room temperature if taking to-go but they will start to get soft if it’s warm. Keep cool if possible.
