Balance Easter Protein Balls

Balance Easter Protein Balls

Nutritious protein balls with a touch of Hot- Cross- Bunny- ness. If you want less sugar replace the dried fruit with nuts or low- sugar choc bits.

Ingredients You'll Need

  • 1 cup almond meal/ground almonds
  • 1 cup coconut, desiccated
  • 2 serves Balance 100% Whey WPC/WPI Vanilla protein powder
  • 1 Tbsp LSA (ground linseed, sunflower and almond)
  • ½ tsp of each: cinnamon & mixed spice
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 4 Tbsp mixed dried fruit i.e. currants, sultanas etc
  • 1 Tbsp coconut oil, melted
  • 1 orange, zest and juice
  • 1 Tbsp honey
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 Tbsp tahini
  • For the crosses
  • ½ serve of Balance 100% Whey WPC/WPI vanilla flavoured protein powder mixed with a little liquid coconut oil. Or you can use melted white chocolate.

 

Steps

Place all ingredients in a food processor and whizz until well combined. The mixture should easily stick together without being too wet.

Shape into 14 balls and refrigerate for an hour.

To make the crosses: In a small bowl place the protein powder and gradually add coconut oil, mixing to combine. Consistency should be pour- able but not too runny! Alternatively melt some white chocolate in a bowl over pot of boiling water and use this to create the crosses.

Remove balls from the fridge and with a teaspoon carefully pour crosses over each ball.

Return balls to refrigerator so that the crosses can set.

Store balls in an air tight container in the fridge.
