How to make Chocolate Nut Protein Balls

Some ingredients for my chocolate protein balls

I recently discovered this recipe on Caz & Craigs’s blog, you should totally check them out if you love food like me *grinning*

Ingredients

  1. 1 cup pitted medjool nuts (also known as dates, pitted refers to the ones with their seeds removed)
  2. 1 cup nuts (any mixture. She used almonds, pecans, hazelnuts and macadamias – i used cashew nuts)
  3. ⅓ cup raw cacao – i use cocoa powder also used in baking.
  4. ⅓ cup coconut oil – we all know this, i made a video my first time making this, click here to watch.
  5. ½ cup shredded coconut – i simply got one coconut and shredded it
  6. 1 table spoon chia seeds – i found this……

Directions

  • Soak dates in warm water for 15 mins to soften
  • Add nuts, cacao, coconut oil, coconut, and chia to processor and mix
  • Add dates and process – i used my normal home blender, strong one though
  • If mixture is too dry add either a tblsp of water or a little coconut oil
  • Let mixture set for 10 mins
  • Roll into bite size balls.
  • Try adding goji berries or spirulina.

Point to note if using a regular blender. Blend your pitted dates first to avoid what happened to me on my first trial. or Blend dates and mixture separately then mix together in a bowl.
