Great for the in-between whether it be school, work, sports, or just because you need something to curb the munch attack - without scaling on the red line of the nutritional chart.
This recipe is way too simple for it to be true (but it is!), and also the best way to use the almond pulp from the leftover of making delicious almond mylk yourself, recipe here.
- 1 cup almond meal
- 3/4 cup pitted dates
- 2 tablespoon chopped walnuts
- 1 tablespoon desiccated coconut
- 1 tablespoon cacao powder
- A pinch of salt
- Put the dates and almonds in a blender, mix on medium-high speed until thoroughly mixed (about 30 seconds) but not pureed. Stop several times to scrape down the sides.
- Add in the blended mixture along with the remainder ingredients in a bowl, mix well and then spoon the mixture into bite sized balls.
- Store in an airtight container to keep in the fridge and snack on whenever you feel like you need a protein pick-up. I take some out for my long runs as a cleaner fuel alternative.
Tip: To add a little extra bite to the protein balls, roll it over some chopped nuts, toasted desiccated coconut, sesame seeds, or whatever you may fancy. Play round with variations to see what you prefer, I used a combination of walnuts and poppy seeds for this batch.
