Easy Protein Energy Balls

Clock Posted Aug 13, 2019

Protein Balls are a simple, easy snack to keep on hand in the fridge for those times when you need instant fuel – and it also helps to keep your healthy eating regime on track during those times when you may be tempted to stray.

These amazing, simple protein balls are super easy to make – all you need is 5 ingredients, 5 minutes and a food processor. They are vegan, full of protein and other super nutritious ingredients, and the best part is that they can be stored in the fridge for up to 10 days.

To make them you need your favourite nuts, and for example you can use almonds, cashews or walnuts. You also need some good quality, plump, fresh, soft dates. Dry, regular dates might not work as well and your mixture might fall apart.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cup cashews (or other nuts)
  • 1 cup pitted dates
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 tbsp cacao powder
  • 1 tbsp protein powder
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds (optional but highly recommended)

Instructions

  • Put all of the ingredients in a food processor (nuts first) and blend until you get a smooth mixture
  • Roll into little balls and store in the fridge

Notes

As these balls can be stored for a long time in the fridge, you can double the ingredients to make more!
