Protein Packed Coconut Snowballs

These protein packed power balls are a great source of protein that contains all the essential amino acids needed for repair and for a healthy immune system. The almonds and fresh dates also a good source of vitamin E and minerals.

I added a bit of coconut for that snowy feeling. The cinnamon adds a lovely flavour and also helps stabilize blood sugar levels.

Ingredients

  • 330 g almonds, raw, whole
  • 60 g almond butter, or peanut butter
  • 20 fresh dates, pitted
  • 3 tablespoons Sunflower Seeds
  • 1 teaspoon natural vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 50 ml oat milk
  • Desiccated coconut, for rolling the ball in as a topping.

Instructions

  1. Place the almonds into the food processor with cinnamon, the nut butter, and the sunflower seeds. Process until the mix looks crumbly.
  2. Add the dates and process again until the mix starts to come together. Add a splash of water if you need to so that mixture is soft and forms a soft ball.
  3. Form the mixture into balls. Roll in coconut and store in the fridge until you feel like a snack or quick meal on the run.
  4. Store in the fridge in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks.
