Cacao & Coconut Protein Balls!

Snack food is something most of us struggle with. If carrot sticks and celery just don’t do it for you and everything else you turn too is packed full of sugar and artificial nasties I suggest you give this recipe a go. It’s sugar free, dairy free, gluten free and super delicious! Feel free to mix up the ingredients and get creative with different nuts, seeds and fruits.

 

Cacao & Coconut Protein Balls

  • 1/2 cup Macadamia Nuts*
  • 3/4 cup Brazil Nuts*
  • 1/4 cup shredded (or desiccated) coconut
  • 3 tbsp Puffed Rice
  • 4 tbsp Raw Cacao Powder
  • 1 tbsp Tahini
  • 1 tbsp Honey or Maple Syrup
  • 1 tsp Spirulina
  • 2 tbsp soaked Chia Seeds
  • 8 Medjool Dates
  • Extra coconut for rolling

In a food processor combine nuts until fine and crumbly. Add puffed rice and coconut and combine on a low speed.  Next add dates, cacao powder, chia seeds, spirulina, honey and tahini and blend until combined.  Roll into balls then roll in coconut. Place onto a plate and set in fridge or freezer for 1 hour.

***Note – You do not have to use the nuts I recommended to still get a delicious result. You can also use almonds, walnuts or hazelnuts. You may also like to experiment with other ingredients such as sunflower seeds, goji berries, dried fruits, nut butter and the list goes on.***

Enjoy!
