’High Protein Energy balls’
Now, this is the first time ever testing any kind of healthy ball, but they are something where you master the correct texture after a few times of making them. I must admit, they tasted even better the following day, when they solidified and intensified in flavor. I am a lover of all things that include nuts, oats, berries and dates so there was no doubt in my mind that I wouldn’t be a lover of these kinds of raw balls. With a slight sugar craving in the back of my palette, I opted to make energy balls as I knew they were quick and easy. These are a great little snack to have in your fridge especially if you are craving for a little bit something sweet.
- 1 cup frozen raspberries (When using frozen raspberries, remove them from the freezer 15 minutes before you start making this recipe)
- 2 cups unsweetened coconut shred
- 1 cup cashews
- ½ cup dates (de-seeded)
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tablespoon peanut butter
- Pinch of salt
In the food processor add coconut shreds, cashews, and dates. Pulse until everything is finely broken. Then add vanilla extract, a pinch of salt, and frozen raspberries. Pulse till the mixture is broken down and sticking together. Pour the mixture to a plate and using your hands, shape the mixture into tbsp sized balls. Coat with shredded coconut. Place them into the fridge for 30 min to set.
