There’s a brand of energy balls that are really yummy – however, I can’t eat any of their high-protein offerings because they use whey protein.
After examining the ingredients, I made my own version of one of theirs, albeit with fewer weird sweetener ingredients and more protein!
50ml coconut oil
50g each dates and raisins (soaked in water for an hour or so, then drained)
40g almond butter
30g cashew butter
1 tbsp cinnamon
5g each maca powder and green tea powder
25g spirulina blend (I used MrsGreen)
Vanilla bean scrapings
80ml unsweetened almond milk (you may be able to use less depending on the power of your food processor)
Protein – I used a mix of pea, rice and egg white.
Blend it all up, then roll in crushed almonds!
This made 14 – each with around 12g protein 🙂
