I like to honour my body by eating nutritious whole foods whenever possible. Taking the time to put together meals and snacks that taste amazing, give you all the nutrients you need and help you feel satisfied is such a great gift we can give to ourselves! Today I will sharing a recipe for Plant-based protein balls. These taste so good. They are great for quick snack, or for the kids lunches! They are easy to make and take no time at all!
Plant-based protein balls
1 Tbsp of coconut oil
2 Tbsp of nut/seed butter of choice (can also use wow butter for people with allergies)
20 dates- Medjool dates are the best (soaked for 15-30 mins)
2Tbsp of maple syrup (optional)
2Tbsp of cacao powder
1 scoop of plant-based protein powder (optional)
1 cup of mixed seeds/nuts (hemp, flax,sunflower,pumpkin,cashews, walnuts,almonds)
1 cup of dried toppings (coconut flakes, dried berries, raisins, cacao nibs etc)
In a food processor combine to coconut oil, nut/seed butter, and dates. Blend till smooth. Add maple syrup and cacao powder, plant-based protein powder and blend. Next scoop out the mix into a bowl and add the cup of seeds/nuts and the cup of dried toppings, mix well. roll into balls. Best if you refrigerate them for 30 mins and then enjoy! Store in fridge for about a week or freeze for up to 2 months.
Take care of your beautiful self! You are worth it!
