Crunchy Raw Protein Balls… the same goes here as in the brownie recipe, in this case 'raw' simply means un-cooked, the recipe contains a blend of nuts, fruits and spices that is completely customizable. You do not have to bake these ingredients together!
This is a clean eating recipe made with real food ingredients that is raw, vegan, gluten-free and dairy-free.
These snack balls offer a filling combination of protein, carbs, and fats, plus they're easily portable. Pair two or 3 with a piece of fruit for a snack and avoid the long-list of ingredients in store-bought granola bars and bites. They are a good source of healthy fats, which are necessary for brain health, but also aid our blood sugar so are great when you are trying to lose weight.
1 cup raw cashews
½ cup almonds
1 tbsp cocoa
1 tbsp raw cacao nibs
2 scoops of protein powder (chocolate) OR use an additional tbsp of cocoa and 4 tbsp of hemp seeds
2-3 tbsp of almond milk
Optional add-ins: 1 tsp cinnamon, 3-4 tbsp shredded coconut or your favourite dried fruit, 2 tbsp peanut butter
Blend all ingredients in food processor, roll into balls and refrigerate before serving. If it doesn’t start to “clump” in the food processor, add some additional almond milk.
Great for snacks, kids, travelling...
rock n' roll.
