These turmeric-spiced balls are a new, exciting flavour idea for your next batch of oat bites. They're gooey, delicious, and pack lots of health-boosting ingredients. So, let's make them together!

These bite-sized oat balls are the perfect treat when you crave something sweet yet nourishing.

They combine wholegrain oats with nut butter, plus a splash of freshly squeezed orange juice for natural sweetness — no need for added sugar or syrups.

To this delicious base, we added ground turmeric and ginger powder, mighty roots with powerful anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and healing properties.

We also included a pinch of black pepper to boost the absorption of turmeric!

And finally, we rounded it all up with a spoonful of ground flaxseeds for a good dose of omega-3 — good fats that fight inflammation and boost mood.

So, each turmeric bliss ball is like a tiny nutrient powerhouse and bursts with deliciously spiced, citrusy notes. All in just 90 calories per bite!

Make a big batch and keep these turmeric oatmeal bites at hand; they'll keep well in the fridge, or you can even freeze them.

And for more energy balls ideas, try these carrot cake oat bites, acai berry bliss balls, or vegan white chocolate protein balls next. Just as healthy and delicious!

Step 2

Next, tip in the cashew butter, orange juice, and orange extract and mix all into a compact, sticky dough.

Step 3

Now, divide the turmeric oat dough into as many pieces as the number of servings — 12 for the default ingredients.

Shape each piece into a bite-sized ball, rolling it and smoothing it between your palms.

Step 4

Place the prepared oat bites into a container, cover, and keep in the fridge for at least 10 minutes to set.

This also allows the oats to soak up the liquids and soften, so they won't feel "raw" when you bite into a ball.

Your healthy turmeric bliss balls are ready!

Enjoy them as they are or dust them with a little ground turmeric if you like.

Coating ideas

You can roll the turmeric balls over dry coconut shreds, almond flour, or finely ground nuts.

Ingredient Swaps

  1. You can swap ground flaxseeds with chia seeds, hemp hearts, or ground almonds.

  2. Light-toned and plain-tasting cashew butter is ideal for this recipe as it won't overpower the colour and taste of turmeric and orange. But if you need to, you can swap it with other nut butters, like almond butter or peanut butter.

  3. For a nut-free recipe, use sesame paste (AKA tahini) instead of nut butter.

How to store

Store these oat turmeric balls in an air-tight container in the fridge for 5 days or freeze them for 3 months.
