ALMOND POWER BALLS

I couldn’t find a recipe for protein balls that included ingredients in my pantry so I whipped this one up! As you can tell, I like easy recipes and minimal mess. No fancy equipment. The addition of hemp hearts adds additional protein (2 tbsp is 10g of protein!) and healthy omega-3 and omega-6 fats to keep you full and satisfied for hours. These can be stored in the freezer and are perfect when you need a high protein snack between meals. 

Ingredients:

  • 8 prunes 

  • 1.5 cup rolled oats

  • 1/2 warm water

  • 1/2 cup ground almonds

  • 1/2 cup hemp hearts

  • 1/2 cup almond butter

  • 2 tbsp honey

  • 2 tbsp coconut oil, melted

  • 2 tsp vanilla 

  • Shredded coconut to roll balls in (optional)

 

 Instructions

  1. Line a plate with parchment paper

  2. Add prunes, almond butter, and warm water in any mixer/blender/bullet pulse until smooth

  3. Add prune mixture to a large bowl along with everything else (except coconut) 

  4. Take a tablespoon to measure and roll the mixture into a ball. Roll in shredded coconut (if desired), and set on a plate to chill in the fridge
