Chocolate Coconut Protein Balls

These littles balls of nutrition are packed with nuts, seeds, fruit, and protein power (optional) making them an ideal quick-grab option for breakfast or a snack throughout the day. I always have a couple in my locker so I have something quick to eat inbetween clients.  They are super tasty too!

You can modify the ingredients to use whatever nuts/fruit you prefer.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup of cashew nuts
  • 1/2 cup mixed seeds
  • 1/2 cup ground almond
  • 5 dried figs
  • tsp coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup agave nectar
  • 1/2 cup protein power (of your choice, i used chocolate flavour soy proptein)
  • tbsp alomond butter

Method

  1. Lightly toast the cashew nuts and seeds inder the grill
  2. Place all dry ingredients in a food processor and blend until thoroughly mixed and at the consistency you desire, I like mine quite smooth.
  3. Add the wet ingredients and mix untill the consistency is like cookie dough. Soft but possible to handle.
  4. Roll mixture out into balls and place in the fridge to firm. I wrapped mine individually in tin foil so they are ready to take out the fridge and take to work.
