Magic Protein Balls Recipe

protein balls
Be warned, these are highly addictive!

2 tbsp Honey or Agave

2 tbsp Cashew or Hazelnut butter or any other nut butter you fancy

150g assorted Nuts and seeds (e.g. pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, coconut flakes  etc)

20g Pure Protein Powder

1 tsp Cayenne pepper or Chilli powder (optional)

1 tsp Cinnamon

100 – 150g mixed dried fruit, chopped (e.g. apricot, goji berries, cranberries etc)

Melt the honey/ agave and the nut butter  together over a low heat. Add the nuts, seeds and dried fruit. Stir in the protein powder and spices and mix together well. You may need to adjust quantities slightly to make sure you have a mixture that is sticky enough to to hold together but dry enough to shape into balls.

Wait until the mixture has cooled down enough so you can handle it and form the mixture into balls. I usually roll the balls in ground almonds, dessicated coconut, carob powder or toasted sesame seeds – it depends on what I have in my cupboard and what I fancy.

This mixture makes 8 large balls.
