protein balls

Protein Balls

1 cup each of: pumpkin/sunflower/flax (linseed) seeds;

1 cup protein powder (I use Vital Protein as it is a good quality one, no artificial colourings and additives)

1/2 cup maca powder

1/2 cup goji berries

3/4 cup coconut oil

1/2 cup olive oil

a good dash of cinnamon powder (I grind my own as the one in supermarkets is stale and not fresh)

2 TBS of  organic, unsweetened,cacao powder (I use Loving Earth)

1 TBS carob powder

2 cups coconut desiccated (organic and not from supermarket unless it states no preservative)

*dried fruit is optional and only in small amounts as dried fruit has more sugar then in the raw state.

In these ones I’ve put 150 g dried prunes and 10 dates soaked in hot water (250 ml) for 10 minutes to soften up and added the liquid as well (half the quantity).

Step 1: Grind first flaxseeds in a food processor, as they take longer, discard in a large bowl. Proceed with the other seeds and discard on top of the batch of seeds already done.Note:Do not over mix as they will become seed butter. Grind until course texture only. Finish off with goji berries achieving the same texture.

Step 2:Mix with hands the mixture and add the other ingredients and only 1 cup of desiccated coconut. Mix well until well combined,it should not be too wet or too dry,if too dry add more oils.

Step 3:Put aside  1 bowl with water and 1 with the 1 cup of desiccated coconut.When the right consistency is achieved wet hands and take small amounts of the mixture, press and shape firmly until round, about the size of a walnut or smaller (grape) if wanted. Roll the ball in the coconut then set aside on a tray or container.

Can replace the coconut for rolling with chia seeds if preferred.

Store in fridge up to 2 weeks. Serving size depends on the size created if walnut size 2-3, if grape size 4-6 is a good amount.

Great for kids lunch boxes, on the go when you know you will skip breakfast/lunch; in the afternoon when the sugar craveitits hits in; after sport activity.
