Veteran – Protein Chocolate Balls


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)


AND…They are CHOCOLATE!!!!

They taste delicious!

Raw Chocolate Protein Balls


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


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
