When you need a choc hit that packs a protein punch at the same time, you can’t go wrong with these super easy Chocolate and Vanilla Protein Balls.
Try them today, you won’t regret it, I promise.
300g raw almonds
60g vanilla protein powder
4 tablespoons raw cacao powder
1 teaspoon of cinnamon
15-20 medjool dates, pitted
1 tablespoon natural vanilla extract
Water (usually 1-2 tablespoons)
Shredded coconut for dusting (or you could dust in cacao powder)
Blitz the almonds, protein powder, cacao and cinnamon in your food processor until it’s a crumble-like powder. Then add the dates and the vanilla extract and blitz again. Now add the water, just a teaspoon or so at a time, until the mixture comes together.
Roll into balls, around 40-50g each makes a good snack size. Then dust in the coconut or the cacao (if you like it bitter). Or even leave them nudey rudey, they still taste great naked.
Pop them in an airtight container and keep in the fridge. A little out of site, or they’ll all be gone before the kids even get home from school.
PS. These are gluten free
