cacao_protein_balls

This started as one of those ‘how do I start using up all the food I have in my cupboards’ kind of situations. I had lots of cacao powder and Sunwarrior raw vegan protein powder, among other things.

They are incredibly easy to make, and I found them best served frozen or chilled otherwise they get a bit soft.

Ingredients:

1/2 cup raw walnuts
1/3 cup raw almond butter
1 tbsp organic cold pressed coconut oil
1 1/2 tbsp raw honey
5 medjool dates, de-pitted
1/4 + 1/8 cup raw cacao powder + extra for coating
1/4 + 1/8 cup raw Vanilla Sunwarrior protein powder
2 tsp raw maca powder

Directions:

In a food processor, mix all ingredients until smooth. If they are a bit too wet to roll, you could add more protein or cacao powder. And if they are too dry, add a bit of extra honey or coconut oil!

Roll into small balls and coat with extra cacao powder.

Freeze and eat frozen or chilled.

Boom.
