Chocolate Protein Balls

Detail:

  • Makes approximately 15 balls
  • Time: 30 minutes from start to finish!

Ingredients:

  • 15g cup soft coconut oil
  • 20g cashew butter
  • 30g Kaizen Living Organic Raw Cacao Powder
  • 50g Good Quality Chocolate Protein Powder.
  • 100g almonds
  • 100g hazelnuts
  • 15g raw honey or other natural sweetener of choice (to taste)*
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract.
  •  Pinch of sea salt

Cover the outside of the balls with any of the following ideas:

  • Organic desiccated coconut
  • Hemp seeds
  • Sesame seeds
  • Arctic Berries Cranberry Powder
  • Matcha powder
  • Bee pollen

Method:

  • Combine all ingredients together in a food processor. If you don’t have a food processor substitute 200g of ground almonds for the almond/hazelnuts) and combine the ingredients by hand in a normal mixing bowl.
  • Now place the ‘dough’ in the freezer for 10 minutes to allow it to harden.
  • Remove mixture from the freezer and take one large tablespoon amount into your hands.
  • Roll into a small ball. Continue this with the remaining mixture.
  • Place your coating ingredient into a small bowl and roll each ball in this.
  • Place the finished balls into an airtight freezer-friendly container.
  • Store for 2-3 months in the freezer or up to one month in the fridge – although we doubt you’ll be that self controlled!
