The Malignant Ginger

I'm Jojogingerhead, a 31 year old artist & musician based in Brighton (UK) satirically documenting the highs and lows of my secondary triple negative breast cancer diagnosis. Trying to see the light in a dark and scary situation without using the words fight, battle, journey or survivor.

Great balls of fire (and nuts and seeds and dried fruit)




Energy balls round two! Let’s hope that these ones don’t taste like the devils rectum like round one did. Here is the new and improved recipe:

Mixed nuts (brazil, almonds, hazelnuts, walnuts)
Mixed seeds

Flax seeds
Manuka honey
Dried fruit (dates, raisins, goji berries, apricots, prunes) left to soak in hot water for 15 mins


Put them all in a blender and in the words of Jamie Oliver, WHAZZ IT UP till it’s a paste, almost like clay. This is the messy bit… using your hands, roll the clay mixture into small balls and then roll the balls on a plate covered with oats and chopped nuts. This should coat the outside in the oat/nut mixture so the balls aren’t sticky, oh er missus we do NOT like sticky balls! Put the balls in the fridge to chill for a few hours before eating. They should last about a week if you keep them in the fridge.


I was in the pound shop the other day (classy) and came across these bird fat balls which look suspiciously similar but probably taste a bit better!
