      RAW Chocolate Protein Balls


      This recipe acts as so many things in my home.

      They are a wonderful snack for my children, giving them a perfect amount of raw nuts and seeds.

      They are plenty sweet so my kids love them.

      They also act as a post-workout snack...giving me the protein my body craves.

      They are made with only WHOLE ingredients...nothing processed!

      (no protein powders, no processed flour)

      They are SUGAR-FREE, OIL-FREE, DAIRY-FREE, GLUTEN-FREE...

      AND...They are CHOCOLATE!!!!

      They taste delicious!

       

      Raw Chocolate Protein Balls


      Ingredients

      1 cup raw cashews

      1/3 cup raw almonds

      1/2 cup raw walnuts

      1/3 cup raw sunflower seeds

      2 tablespoons raw flax seed

      8- 1 oz. coconut date rolls or 8 oz. of any type of date, chopped small

      3 tablespoons Cocoa powder

      1 teaspoon vanilla

       

       

      Directions


      1.  Place all of the nuts and seeds in a food processor or powerful blender and finely chop all of the ingredients.  To help grind the flax seed enough, you can always grind this first in a coffee grinder.

       

      2.  Add the chopped coconut date rolls (image below), cocoa and vanilla to the nut and seed mixture.  Process all ingredients together until everything is ground and a tough yet soft dough is created.

       

       

      3.  Form the dough into bite-sized balls (kids have a lot of fun with this step).  Keep balls in refrigerator or freezer for a quick and easy snack!

       

      Makes approx. 21-24 balls
