This Spring/Summer I plan on trying my hand at more healthy baked/non baked sweet treats. I have always called myself a “hopeless baker” but you are what you manifest, so I am going to challenge myself and bring you guys my healthy take on your favourite desserts and treats, starting with these Protein Energy Balls. Pop one or two of these into your mouth after a workout session or for a midday snack. They're so yummy, you wouldn't believe they're actually good for you!
Prep Time: 30 mins
Setting Time: 30 mins
Servings:18 - 20 balls
Shelf Life: 1 week
3 cups Organic Rolled Oats
1/2 - 3/4 cup of Almond or Coconut milk
1/2 cup Milled Flaxseeds
3 tbsp Pea Protein
1 tbsp Coconut & Almond Butter
1 1/2 tbsp Crunchy Peanut Butter
2 tbsp Agave Nectar
Handful Coconut Flakes
1 tbsp Chia Seeds
1 tsp Cocoa Powder
1/4 Cinnamon Powder
In a mixing bowl, or food processor (on low), pour in all the ingredients EXCEPT for your choice of milk. Start to mix all the components together, whilst simultaneously adding the milk in drops till everything is combined. You should have a solid, thick, dough like consistency.
Using your hand, take a medium pinch size portions and roll the mix in between the palms of your hands till you create an even sized ball.
Repeat these steps until you have used up all your mixture.
Now you've created all your balls, sprinkle with cocoa powder along with the coconut flakes and set in the fridge for a minimum of 30 minutes.
Once set, try not to eat them all at once. Enjoy!
