These tasty little protein balls are the perfect source of carbohydrates, protein and healthy fats. Great as a quick and convenient pre- or post- workout snack, or even for morning or afternoon tea.

Ingredients you'll need

  • Balance 100% Whey Protein Divine Chocolate, 4 scoops (112g)
  • 3 cups dates, dried & pitted
  • 1 1/2 cups almonds, raw
  • 1 orange, juice and rind
  • 3 Tbsp coconut oil, melted
  • A little water
  • coconut, desiccated (optional)

Steps

  1. Place the dates and almonds in to a food processor and mix until well combined.
  2. Add orange juice and rind, coconut oil and Balance 100% Whey Protein to the date/nut mix and process to combine.
  3. You may need to add a little water to help the mixture stick when forming balls, you should need no more than 2 Tbsp, add this if necessary and mix to combine.
  4. Roll mixture into balls (should make approximately 30 balls). Roll balls in coconut if desired and store in an air- tight container in the fridge for several weeks. Alternatively these can be stored in the freezer for even longer and taken out as needed- they're small, so will defrost easily.
