Day 215 – Protein Balls

Protein Balls
Protein Balls

I found an article in The Age this week about Protein Balls and after reading the article and recipe – I thought hello… these are just like my Cacao Nib Cookies… this is a slight variation but still a raw protein packed energy ball – no light toasting of nuts allowed though!

Ingredients:…makes 10-12…

150g  walnuts (I pre-soak and dehydrate mine)

100g almond (again pre-soaked and dehydrated)

2 Tbsp. pumpkin seeds

170g soaked dates, pitted

100g diced dried apricots

10og prunes

1 Tbsp. tahini

2 Tbsp. raw cacao

1/2 cup cacao nibs

1 Tsp. vanilla powder

1 Tbsp. cinnamon

2 Tbsp. agave or date juice from soaking

Pinch of sea salt

Method:

In a food processor place walnuts, almonds and pumpkin seeds – process until finely ground.

Add the remaining ingredients and process until the mixture starts to form a ball.

If you need to – add more nuts – you don’t want the mixture too moist.

Scoop out ice-cream full amounts onto a lined dehydrator tray and dehydrate overnight at 118 degrees Fahrenheit.

Place in an airtight container and enjoy your protein energy orbs when you need a power snack!
