Leftover almond pulp protein balls
These protein balls take just minutes to prepare but they contain a mini farm of nutrients that will refill your battery at the first mid-morning slump. Satisfying and chewy, these are designed as lifesaver snacks, the sort your throw in your kids’ lunch boxes when you have forgotten to pack a snack the night before and you have exactly 3 minutes to get them dressed, fed and out the door…we all have those times!
1 cup gluten-free rolled oats
1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
1/2 cup chia seeds
1/2 teaspoon salt
3-4 tbsp cacao powder
1 cup almond pulp
1/2 cup date syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup peanut or almond butter
1/3 cup coconut milk
1. In a blender, add all the dry ingredients and pulse until it reaches the consistency of coarse sand.
2. Add in the wet ingredients (except for the coconut milk) and pulse until the mixture is a thick doughy consistency. If too dry, add 1 tablespoon of coconut milk at a time and blend until combined.
3. Roll into small, round sized balls between your palms and store in an airtight jar in the fridge and indulge when required.
