Are you up for a challenge? I bet you can’t eat just one or two or even three of these incredibly delicious AND nutrient dense protein balls?! Do you accept?
Both of these recipes are #glutenfree AND #dairyfree! BAM! BAM! and BAM!
Snack Attack Protein Balls
2 cups gluten free rolled oats
1 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
1 cup sunflower seed butter
1 cup ground flax seeds
1 cup cacao nibs
2/3 cup honey or maple syrup
2 tbsp chia seed
•few drops peppermint extract or oil
Add all ingredients into a large mixing bowl. Fold in together. Form mixture into balls. Place onto baking sheet or put in airtight container in fridge or eat immediately. Protein balls will keep for a week or so!
Perfect Pumpkin Protein Balls
1/2 cup raisins, soaked in water
1/2 cup pumpkin seeds
1/2 cup canned organic pumpkin puree
1/2 cup protein powder (or sub rolled oats)
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
3 heaping tablespoons unsweetened dried coconut flakes
Drain raisins from water and add to a large mixing bowl. Add the remaining ingredients and mix well. Add about 1/4 cup of water if the mixture is too dry. (Note: I prefer to chop raisins and seeds in a food processor for a quick sec before mixing in with rest of ingredients. Your choice.) Form the mixture into balls. Eat immediately or store in airtight container in the fridge for up to 1 week.
Now, back to that challenge…I bet you can’t eat just one!
